|Wen Jiabao: China Plays an Important and Constructive Role in Promoting the Results of Copenhagen Conference|
On December 21, 2009, Premier of the State Council Wen Jiabao told Xinhua News Agency during an interview in Beijing that the Copenhagen conference, after twists and turns, issued the Copenhagen Accord in the form of conference decision. The document sticks to the dual-track system of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol, makes clearer the obligations of and actions to be taken by developed and developing countries respectively according to the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities" and reflects the consensus reached by the international community on such issues as long-term targets, fund, technology and transparency of actions. These are widely recognized and hard-won results achieved through joint efforts of all parties and deserve to be cherished.
During the conference, China, in the spirit of mutual respect, equal consultations, seeking common ground while reserving differences and pragmatic cooperation, has conducted close communication and coordination with all parties in an open, transparent and highly-efficient manner. China has played an important and constructive role in promoting the current results of the conference. It has shown the greatest sincerity and made the best efforts.
China is willing to work with other countries to take the Copenhagen conference as a new beginning, fulfill commitments, strengthen cooperation, complete the "Bali Roadmap" negotiations at an early date, seek new progress for the international cooperation on climate change and make due contributions to human efforts of dealing with climate change.
