The UN talks on climate change were in a deadlock on 16/12/2009, just as the European Union and the European Commission arrived in Copenhagen to try and hammer out a deal.
We need our American partners and Chinese partners to give a further contribution to the success of these talks, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, told journalist at a joint EU/Africa press conference.
To stop climate change, you also need this global deal to be on mitigation, to bring us close to the 2 degrees target, said Fredrik Reinfeldt, Swedish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council.
Meles Zenawi, Ethiopian Prime Minister, and head of the African group of nations at the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, proposed a finance deal where rich countries would pay for schemes to help poor states adapt to climate change and develop their economies using clean technology.
