China and India call on rich countries to step up climate change efforts

The statement, issued by the two largest developing nations during Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s visit to China, asked wealthy countries to provide finance, technology and other necessary support to emerging countries to help reduce their own emissions.

“The two sides urged the developed countries to raise their pre-2020 emission reduction targets and honour their commitment to provide $100bn per year by 2020 to developing countries,” the statement said. While both countries stopped short of making any commitments, they said they would submit their respective plans to curb greenhouse gas emissions well before crucial global climate talks are held in Paris later this year
