Highlights: COP28: Sultan al-Jaber pushes for agreement as early as Tuesday in Dubai. He proposed to the representatives of the 197 countries to write "a page of history" in the fight against global warming. A third draft of the text, which is probably not the last, was presented on Friday afternoon. The 27-page document proposes moving away from fossil fuels. It's not a done deal. But too many options remain on the table. It would be a novelty. Previous summits have all spanned at least one or two days.

It's not a done deal. Already, in terms of form, he has the ambition to finish the negotiations on time, from 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning (8 a.m. in Paris).
