CHINESE Vice-President Han Zheng has underlined his country’s commitment to tackle the climate emergency.
State news agency Xinhua reported that Mr Han had given the commitment during a meeting on Tuesday with US special presidential envoy for climate John Kerry on the margins of the United Nations general assembly in New York.
The Chinese vice-president stressed that his government was committed to advancing ecological conservation as part of efforts to arrest accelerating climate change.
Mr Kerry visited Beijing last July to revive bilateral relations, which have come under increasing strain as a result of US hysteria over China’s growing economic and political power.
While the US has imposed sanctions on China and undermined its sovereignty in relation to the breakaway province of Taiwan, Beijing has continued to lead the world in green tech.
It has reduced methane emissions, limited the use of coal and stemmed deforestation, while also supporting poorer nations’ efforts to tackle the impact of climate change.
China recently announced that it is on target to achieve carbon neutrality before 2060.
Last July and August, the planet experienced record high temperatures, which are widely believed to have been caused in large part by carbon emissions.
