||Speech by Connie Hedegaard (ENGLISH): "We now and then disagree on something, you might not have discovered but that happens. But we also have a lot of things in common I think and we have some very very frank discussions and conversations and I think that we have the mutual respect because we know that each of us actually want to push things forward in the international climate negotiations and in our respective countries, so exactly like our people do. I think that over the years, we have developed a level of trust and we know that we sort kind of discuss with each other and also sometimes make results together and I appreciate that very much."

||Speech by Connie Hedegaard (ENGLISH): "I think of course that it is incredibly encouraging that we now see the ETS family growing. We see more and more regional schemes, including in some american states. We know that California will be starting their carbon trading scheme 1st of January, in four week from now. We have seen it in Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Canada, South Korea and I know that other countries are really considering into introduce the same kind of principles. It goes without saying that Europe wants to share experience with others and build a global system of ambitious and compatible carbon trade system."
||Speech by Connie Hedegaard (ENGLISH): "Don't forget that outsie the second commitment period when we leave Doha, we will have 85% of the global emissions. Countries representing 85% of global emissions will not be part of the second commitment period. So I think that that is very important to focus on the ambition gap. We are doing that right now at the roundtable ministerial on this in the plenary, but I just need to emphasis here, it is not enough just to ask more ambition for the few countries, European union, Australia, a few others and others taking a second commitment period, to add on to ambition that is something all of us have to do.
