Fresh from the solidarity displayed at the Copenhagen Summit on climate change, India and China on Tuesday agreed to continue cooperating on the issue in the coming months in order to safeguard the interests of developing countries.
In a telephonic conversation, Foreign Ministers of both countries, S.M. Krishna and Yang Jiechi discussed India-China cooperation on climate change including possible follow-up measures flowing from the recent Copenhagen Summit, said an External Affairs Ministry statement.
Mr. Krishna noted that India and China had worked closely and effectively together at Copenhagen and stressed that the developing world, including both countries, needs to evaluate the results of the conference and then decide on a strategy for the post-Copenhagen process.
In another telephonic conversation, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband spoke with Mr. Krishna and exchanged views on bilateral relations and regional and international issues.
Mr. Miliband reiterated an invitation to Mr. Krishna to attend the Conference on Afghanistan scheduled to be held in London on January 28 next year.
