LONDON/SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt -- Divisions remain between countries over key issues on the last scheduled day of the COP27 climate summit, with negotiations potentially spilling into the weekend if a final agreement cannot be reached on Friday.

Delegates have been pushing to bridge rifts at the world's largest climate conference, which kicked off just under two weeks ago at the Egyptian seaside resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. But many observers say there are still big differences on some topics, stoking the likelihood negotiations will continue into Saturday -- echoing a similar extension at last year's COP in Glasgow, Scotland.
