The two-week UN climate talks, which began on December 1, are continuing in the Peruvian capital Lima. 

Delegates from 190 countries are meeting to pave a way for a new agreement on climate change, which is planned to be passed in late 2015 in Paris, and come into force in 2020.

But there was no breakthrough in the first week. Chinese delegation head Xie Zhenhua, who is also the deputy head of the National Development and Reform Commission, said there had been developments and some disappointments in the first week’s negotiations.

In the coming week, China will stick to the principle of common but differentiated responsibility, and try to push for an agreement on climate change.

"First, in this process, we should stick to a multilateral mechanism. And the talks should be open and transparent. Second, for the content, it should be inclusive, and opinions from all sides should be represented. If these two criteria can be met, I think the results of this year’s meeting will be recognized by all," Xie said.
