More on Chinese President Xi Jinping's speech. He mentioned that China set up a south-south cooperation fund this September to support moves on climate change issues. Next year, China will take more actions, such as pushing the development of clean energy, protecting ecology environment and build low-carbon smart cities. Let's listen to some expert commentry. 

"The biggest effect is bringing strong confidence to the meeting. I believe that representatives from all countries will work hard after these speeches addressed by leaders. Although time is tight, there will be positive results reached from the meeting," said Su Wei, China's chief climate negotiator.

"China did a very important thing last year, cutting coal use for the first time since 1949. So I am optimistic about President Xi's words on carbon emissions reduction. China does not only talk about it, but also makes progress. So it will be achieved," said Alexey Yablokov, Russian environmentalist.

"I highly praise China's attitude. The U.S., Canada, China and the Europe all play very important roles on cutting carbon emission and saving energy. Chinese government is very far-sighted and held positive attitude. Other countries should take China as a model, making same decisions. We hope that years later these decisions and efforts could produce effective results, improving climate conditions," said Nelson Gutierrez, expert from Senamhi, Peru.
