China Today (English) - - FOCUS -

Chi­nese Premier Li Ke­qiang and vis­it­ing Pres­i­dent François Hol­lande of France to­gether at­tended the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the China-France Cli­mate and Green Econ­omy Fo­rum in Bei­jing on Novem­ber 3.

Premier Li ex­pressed in his speech that the two na­tions’ co­op­er­a­tion in tack­ling cli­mate change shows that they are will­ing to shoul­der com­mon re­spon­si­bil­ity on vi­tal is­sues con­cern­ing the fate of hu­mankind, and that bi­lat­eral ties are al­ways at the fore­front of China’s re­la­tions with ma­jor Western coun­tries. He em­pha­sized that China would, in line with the green de­vel­op­ment con­cept, con­tin­u­ously ex­pand the win-win path of eco­nomic growth and en­vi­ron­men­tal im­prove­ment.

Pres­i­dent Hol­lande ex­pressed that as ma­jor coun­tries, France and China have the im­por­tant re­spon­si­bil­ity of push­ing global de­vel­op­ment, and share iden­ti­cal goals and ideas in ad­dress­ing cli­mate change. Both, there­fore, will be proac­tive in en­sur­ing the suc­cess of the Cli­mate Change Con­fer­ence in Paris, un­der the prin­ci­ple of com­mon but dif­fer­en­ti­ated re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. France highly ap­pre­ci­ates the strat­egy pro­posed by China in build­ing eco­log­i­cal civ­i­liza­tion and push­ing green de­vel­op­ment. The two coun­tries en­joy sound co­op­er­a­tion in clean en­ergy and en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion in­dus­tries.
