Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived Wednesday evening for the ongoing UN Climate Change Conference.
Wen told reporters aboard his special plane that his attendance at the meeting aims to show the great importance the Chinese government and people attach to climate change and to assert their sincerity and determination to work with the international community to meet this global challenge.
The Copenhagen climate conference is now in its final and critical stage, Wen said, adding that he will closely communicate and coordinate with various parties and deliver a speech outlining China's stance on climate change.
"I hope the meeting, with joint efforts made by various parties, will yield fair, reasonable, balanced and achievable results," he said.
During his stay in the Danish capital, Wen is scheduled to meet with some foreign leaders on the sidelines of the climate summit.
"Wen's trip to Copenhagen will inject a new momentum into the climate change talks and exert positive and important impacts for future international cooperation," Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Wang Guangya told a press conference on December 10.
The UN Climate Change Conference, which opened on December 7, is to end Friday in Copenhagen. It aims to map out a comprehensive international arrangement for the fight against climate change over the period 2012-2020.
