Beijing – o. Government of china On friday she said she didn’t want to American Joe Biden’s acceptance of leadership sought in climate issue. Chinese law firm criticized United States Historical Report on Global WarmingBiden’s Climate Envoy, during a trip to Shanghai by John Carey.
The attempt to strengthen cooperation between China and the US on this issue is a fictional event organized by the White House, which will involve 40 leaders, a week before the Climate Change Summit. They also include President Jair Bolsonaro.
At its daily press conference, Chinese law firm spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that Americans are responsible for delaying compliance with the 2015 Paris Agreement.
He said: “The United States announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement in 2017 and halted the implementation of its goals, which have prevented the world from achieving the goals of the agreement.”
In June 2017, former President Donald Trump’s administration withdrew Washington from the deal, stating that its terms would “harm” the US economy and “permanently harm” the country. Hours after its inauguration on 20 January of this year, Biden countered the agreement in which states had committed to voluntary targets to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
President Xi Jinping made Zhao’s remarks before attending a virtual summit with Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. Xi’s agenda does not include meetings with Kerry during the US visit to China, the final leg of the world tour to negotiate stronger environmental commitments.
The Biden administration is again trying to pioneer the United States in the fight against the global crisis after failures in its predecessor era.
The White House hopes to announce an updated target to cut its emissions by 50% by the end of this decade, as previously promised. For example, the energy and transport sectors need to be drastically changed to achieve the goal.
The official announcement is expected to take place at next week’s summit, which will include several leaders from the world’s most polluted countries and smaller countries, particularly exposed to the effects of the climate crisis. The US aims to persuade them to make more robust climate change commitments ahead of COP-26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland in November.
In a press release from the federal government, Macron and Merkel welcomed China’s commitment to achieve CO2 neutrality by 2060, which was announced last year.
He also said that he supports Beijing’s plan to cut its short-term emission targets. Merkel spokesman Ulrich Demer said the three heads of state and government discussed the coronovirus epidemic, the global supply of vaccines against the disease, and the relationship between Beijing and the European Union.
According to the news agency Xinhua, Xi is ready to cooperate with European countries and supports enhanced international cooperation in combating the climate crisis and COVID-19. He said Beijing would ratify the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement to gradually reduce the consumption and production of fluorocarbons.
The Chinese leader also said that he expected developed countries to provide financial and technical assistance to developing countries in the fight against global warming and that the issue would not be used as an element of geopolitical dialogue. / Reuters e.
