Xie Zhenhua, China’s Special Envoy for Climate Change
Leaders from China, the US and the EU have all stressed the importance of ensuring the success of COP28. To that end, I have agreed with Kerry and Timmermans that we are committed to showing the utmost flexibility and constructiveness during this conference. Our goal is to find bridging solutions for some of the sticky issues that have arisen in the ongoing negotiations.
In the past two months, Kerry and I have held video conferences almost bi-weekly to discuss arrangements for our next meeting and the Climate Action Working Group. I also proposed to Kerry that I am willing to travel to the US for further discussions if needed, seeking to achieve positive outcomes for the benefit of all.
