China Protests Copenhagen Chair's Draft Texts
Adjust font size:
China on Wednesday protested the proposed draft texts of the Copenhagen climate change conference the Danish chair put forward without consulting the parties to the conference.
"This is a party-driven process, you can't just put forward a text from the sky," China's chief negotiator Su Wei said at the morning session of the conference after an announcement on such draft texts by the Danish chair.
It has been agreed before this meeting that the only legitimate basis for discussion will be the outcome of the two major working groups of the conference, Su said.
