The conference was joined by Danish PM Lars Lokke Rassmussen, Australian PM Kevin Rudd, Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Ethiopian PM Meles Zenawi, and Algerian PM Ahmed Ouyahia.

The discussions concentrated on initiatives proposed at the UN Summit scheduled on December 18 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The leaders also discussed national commitments to the success of the Summit, including the launching of the US $10-billion Copenhagen Fund to assist the countries severely affected by climate change.

They urged developed countries to slash down the emission of greenhouse gases, promote clean technology transfer to developing and underdeveloped countries, and establish a global coordinating organization to supervise the realization of commitments.

Việt Nam highly appreciates important initiatives to protect the Earth’s climate, especially efforts to help developing countries minimize greenhouse gases and respond to climate change, stated PM Nguyễn Tấn Dũng in the conference.

He asserted that developed countries and financial organizations should adopt preferential assistance mechanisms in favor of the countries severely affected by climate change, including Việt Nam.

PM Dũng emphasized that Việt Nam calls on and thanks the international community for cooperation and assistance to Việt Nam in coping with climate change and sea level rising.

“With joint efforts of each and every country, Việt Nam is strongly confident in the success of the upcoming Copenhagen Summit,” the Vietnamese leader said.
