Snubbed, China's delaying tactics threaten climate deal - Climate Change, Environment - The Independent

Read Here: China's delaying tactics threaten climate deal - Climate Change, Environment - The Independent:

"China is attempting to scupper chances of a comprehenive agreement at the
Copenhagen climate summit by using delaying tactics, sources inside the
negotiations have told The Independent.
At an emergency meeting convened at
the Bella Center this morning, Barack Obama and Gordon Brown assembled 26 heads
of state in an attempt to revive a deal. But China's Premier Wen Jiabao did not
attend and was replaced by vice foreign minister He Yafei.
This afternoon,
the US president and his secretary of state Hillary Clinton called another
meeting with China, but were snubbed again when only three low-level Chinese
delegates arrived."
