Swedish Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren is in Washington for talks with politicians on climate change and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.

The United States has not signed the Kyoto Protocol, and Carlgren says there is pressure now on the Bush Administration to change its climate policies.

The Swedish Environment Minister says the United States also has a key role in getting expanding economies like Brazil, India, and China to accept the new agreement that will replace Kyoto.

After his visit in Washington, Carlgren is continuing to California, which is planning to reduce greenhouse gases by 25 percent by the year 2020. In June Sweden signed an agreement with the Golden State to cooperate on renewable fuels and energy.

The environment minister’s visit will conclude in Canada.
