Climate Change China vows to adhere to Paris deal

Trump's loss is Li's gain as Berlin rolls out red carpet for China's PM

"We in Germany, in Europe and the world will band together to take more decisive action than ever to confront and successfully surmount major challenges to humanity such as climate change", she told reporters. He was due to head later for Brussels.

'China and the European Union are the most supportive of collaborative governance, multilateralism and globalization, ' said Wang.

As China opens her door wider to the world, more market opportunities will be provided and mutual benefits and win-win outcomes will be achieved, Li said.

"China will continue to implement promises made in the Paris Agreement, to move towards the 2030 goal step by step steadfastly", Li said in a Berlin joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

An article in the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post (SCMP) points out that the USA decision to quit the Paris deal "cedes global climate action leadership to China, which Trump chided in his speech, and the European Union (EU)".

As reported by Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's global broadcaster, Merkel has in recent days suggested that German-US ties were on less stable ground, having vented her frustration at Trump following last week's G7 talks in Sicily, which she described as "very unsatisfying".

For her part, Merkel said China is becoming an increasingly important partner to Germany since the two countries established diplomatic ties 45 years ago, with closer communications in politics, economy and trade as well as people-to-people exchanges.

"These are impressive figures and we both said we want to extend this", said Merkel, adding the signing of business agreements pointed to future cooperation in cars, aviation technology, recycling and artificial intelligence. Li said he believed they two had found a solution on the issue of Chinese quotas for electric cars after a lengthy discussion. "We need the Paris Agreement to conserve creation as we know it".

Merkel also tackled civil rights, saying she and Li had resolved the issue of German political foundations working in China which she said were crucial for a stronger civil society.
