China says it still wants US co-operation on climate change

AP  |  Beijing 

A Chinese official says his country still wants to cooperate with the US on climate change and hopes an upcoming meeting on the issue in Germany will produce a draft agreement on implementing the Paris climate accord.

China's Special Representative on Climate Change Xie Zhenhua told reporters today that China wanted to boost joint efforts in clean energy, carbon capture and research.

After President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the Paris accord in June, China swiftly recommitted itself to the non-binding agreement.

The US will continue to participate in international meetings and negotiations on current and future climate change deals. The next meeting is in Bonn next month.

China is by far the world's largest user of coal and is the No 1 emitter of climate-changing greenhouse gases.
