UN says China to make pledge for climate treaty this month

June 4, 2015


UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United Nations’ top adviser on climate change says China is expected this month to formally submit its pledge for a global climate treaty that countries are seeking to finalize by December.

U.N. assistant secretary-general Janos Pasztor told The Associated Press on Thursday that Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a letter to Ban Ki-moon last week about the issue. Pasztor did not give details.

China is the world’s biggest emitters of heat-trapping carbon dioxide, and its pledge for the global treaty is highly anticipated.

The United States made its pledge in March. Pasztor says 154 countries still have not made their pledges.

The climate treaty is supposed to be adopted at a Paris summit late this year.
