During a meeting, with focus on development and transfer of technology that can help tackle climate change, in Beijing with 76 nations attending the Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said that "developed countries have a responsibility and an obligation to respond to global climate change by altering their unsustainable way of life".

"The developed countries have a responsibility and an obligation to respond to global climate change by altering their unsustainable way of life," Wen was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

Developed countries should also help developing countries respond to climate change, Wen said, according to the agency.

A senior Chinese climate policy official also warned that "a lack of firm funding commitments could derail efforts to cut emissions in developing countries, especially during times of economic turmoil".
