US committed to pursuing a deal at climate change summit
Washington: Stating that President Barack Obama is committed to pursuing a deal at the Copenhagen climate change summit to address the problem, the White House today acknowledged that there are issues that would remain outstanding for quite some time.
"There`s no doubt there are issues that will remain outstanding for quite some time," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters as negotiations on climate change entered the last leg at the Copenhagen Summit.
"The President is committed to pursuing an accord that requires countries to take meaningful steps to address the climate change problem," Gibbs said.
Obama himself would be travelling to Copenhagen later this week in an effort to give a final push to reach an agreement.
"I don`t think there`s any doubt that there are still -- there will be issues left to resolve when he lands – that developing nations are going to have to do their part; they`re
going to have to recognise the part that they have to do; that we have worked strongly and diplomatically to bring countries like India and China along to the point where it`s possible to get some type of agreement; that the President will continue to work throughout this week to make sure that that happens," Gibbs said.
