Copenhagen: A Danish official says 65 world
leaders so far will attend the Copenhagen climate summit in
December and several more have responded positively to
invitations.

The official says those coming include the heads of state
or government of Australia, Brazil, France, Germany,
Indonesia, Japan, Spain and the United Kingdom. He spoke on
condition of anonymity because he is not an official
spokesman.

Denmark last week sent out formal invitations to world
leaders in 191 countries to attend the Dec 7-18 UN climate
summit in Copenhagen.

The conference aims to reach an accord on curbing
emissions of greenhouse gases, which are blamed for global
warming. The new treaty would replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.
