China said Tuesday it hoped the upcoming Copenhagen Conference on climate change would achieve "fair and feasible" results.

China has advocated the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Kyoto Protocol, and the Bali Road Map, and held the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang at a regular press conference.

"All documents or outcomes from the conference should be consistent with the provisions in these agreements, and would pave the way for the cooperation of the international community in the years to come," Qin said.

He also reaffirmed the developed countries and the international community should pay enough attention to the concern of the developing countries.

"The developed nations should honor its commitment to accomplishing or establishing the medium-term emission reduction target on the one hand, and provide the developing nations with financing, technology transfer, and capability building support on the other hand," he said.

Meanwhile, he said the developing nations should take appropriate actions that adapt to and will slow down climate change, in the light of their own national situation and under the sustainable development framework.

Representatives from China, Brazil, India and South Africa along with Sudan, the current chairman nation of G-77, met in Beijing on November 27 to 28 to prepare for the Copenhagen Conference.

They agreed the outcome of the conference should include long-term cooperative actions on climate change, mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, adaptation to the impacts of climate change, as well as provision of financial and technological support.

"The agreements reflect the concern and advocate of the developing nations, and deserves great attention from the developed nations," Qin said.

The 15th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be held from December 7 to 18 in Copenhagen of Denmark. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao will attend the conference.
