(Reuters) – Hosting the COP25 climate summit in Madrid following Chile’s withdrawal as host, is largely a done deal, a Spanish government source said on Thursday.

A formal decision on hosting the summit in Madrid will be taken on Monday in the German city of Bonn, the source said.

“It is nearly done, we have every chance of getting it,” the source said.

Chile backed out of hosting the summit, which is aimed at fleshing out details of how to implement the Paris Agreement climate pact, due to a wave of violent protests in the country’s capital.
