Copenhagen boycott finishes

Copenhagen boycott finishes
Poor countries put an end to their temporary boycott of the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen yesterday (December 14th).

African leaders stormed out of the crucial talks after accusing richer countries of sidelining less affluent nations and attempting to kill the Kyoto Protocol.

Led by African countries, the boycott was backed by 135 developing nations, including the likes of China and India.

However, politicians soon returned to the conference after first world leaders confirmed they were not seeking to reduce their CO2 emission commitments.

Energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband described the loss of time as "very regrettable".

He said: "We have not done a brilliant job today. We are now four minutes to midnight."

Mr Milband added: "There is a real will for substance. I understand the anxiety of developing countries not wanting to declare an end to the Kyoto protocol before a new agreement is in place."

Talks in the Danish capital will continue until the end of the week (December 18th).
