China unveils plan for success

PREMIER Wen Jiabao yesterday laid out five issues that need to be addressed in order to reach a deal on climate change in Copenhagen.

Wen told some world leaders he met in the Danish capital that negotiators should try to reach consensus on what documents to serve as basis for negotiations, emission targets, monitoring mechanisms, long-term goals, and funding as the talks moved into the final segment.

In his talks with Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen yesterday morning, Wen said China hoped the ongoing climate change conference would achieve the best outcome.

Wen said the climate change conference had entered the final stage and all countries must show a broad perspective, act on the basis of reality, respect each other's concerns, stick to the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities," honor existing commitments and reach consensus quickly.

Only by doing this would all parties concerned be able to give the world a final document which could best reflect the common political will of the international community and the efforts every country had made in coping with climate change, he said.

"China will continue to staunchly support the hosting country in its work and engage in close communicationsand coordination with all other sidesfor a best result," Wen said.

Rasmussen said the Danish side highly appreciated the targets China announced for greenhouse gas emissions control.

"It is an important contribution" China had made in meeting the challenge of global climate change, he said.

Rasmussen said the principles outlined by Wen were very important for the conference to have a fruitful conclusion.

"They are a reflection of China's positive attitude to and efforts in promoting international cooperation in dealing with climate change," he said.

Rasmussen called on all participating countries to take positive and responsible attitudes and act like China to work jointly for a good outcome.
