Borg Disappointed After G20 Meeting

Sweden's Foreign Minister, Anders Borg, says he's disappointed that his colleagues from the G20 group of nations didn't do more to come to an agreement on how to help the poorest countries in the world fight climate change.

Speaking to Swedish Radio News after the meeting in London, Borg says that Europe has been doing as much as it can to get a deal, but that some of the developing countries in the group have refused to make any promises. Borg refused to say which countries he is referring to, but according to the news agency Reuters, China and India are worried about how such deals could hurt their own growing economies.

Borg says he is still hopeful that a deal can be reached before the Copenhagen summit on climate change in December, saying the next G20 meeting in Pittsburgh will be crucial.
