Climate Summit

Negotiations in Copenhagen Continue

With the Danish hosts in Copenhagen giving up on presenting a global compromise agreement on climate change, negotiations now continue in two working groups.

Swedish Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren is pleased that the negotiations have started again, even though it will end in two agreements, not one, like the EU had demanded.

"It is still possible to achieve the broad ambitious agreement that we have been striving for," he told the news agency TT. But he also said that it will be a battle against time. "A lot of important time has been wasted".

Earlier Radio Sweden spoke to Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt in Copenhagen, who said that the world's big carbon emitters, the US and China, have to do more. Reinfeldt hoped that an agreement between the EU and the African Union would help in putting pressure on China to do more. To listen to Bill Schiller's report, click below.
