10:00:36 SOUNDBITE by Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action, (in ENGLISH) saying that they are discussing the right stuff - how to add on to ambition and how to help developing countries to cope with challenges, for instance through financing; so there is a constructive atmosphere in that sense but of course there are many different concerns and worries; but the reports from many different sources have convinced people that they simply cannot afford to discuss formality and technicalities, now they must come to the political issue; the EU has pressed the Qatari presidency very hard to achieve that; they had a 5 hour ministerial round table discussing exactly that and she hopes it will bear fruit; in Europe, we are doing more and we think the others should do as well. 00:01:01
