BEIJING, May 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Friday said all countries in the world should strengthen their political resolve to tackle climate change.

"We should promote consensus and increase coordination," Wen said when meeting with foreign representatives during an international conference on the green economy and climate change.

Wen said according to the principle of "common but differentiated responsibility," the international community should further clarify the mandatory reduction targets for developed countries and mitigation actions for developing nations.

The premier also urged that increased international cooperation on climate change was needed. Developed countries should transfer clean technologies to developing nations, and increase aid to least developed countries and small island countries so they can cope with climate change, he said.

"China is willing to work with other countries to promote international cooperation on climate change," Wen noted.

Wen also briefed the conference on China's policy and measures to tackle climate change, which were applauded by all foreign representatives there.

The international conference, with the theme of low carbon, new energy and sustainable development, is being held in Beijing from May 7-9.
