China urges U.S. to support bilateral cooperation on global green transition

CHINA is urging the United States to support bilateral cooperation on climate change and global green transformation.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks during a regular press conference on Monday.

This comes after a recent meeting between the two countries’ working group on Enhancing Climate Action in the 2020s, which was held in Washington DC. The meeting focused on areas like energy transition, greenhouse gas emissions, and circular economy.

China criticized the U.S. for its contradictory approach, which includes threats of high tariffs on Chinese electric vehicles and solar energy products.

China urges the U.S. to stop hindering cooperation and create favorable conditions for joint efforts on climate change and green transition.

“It should be pointed out that while the U.S. side expressed its willingness to strengthen cooperation with China on climate change, it hyped up the so-called ‘overcapacity’ of China’s new energy and threatened to impose high tariffs on Chinese electric vehicles and solar energy products,” said Wang Wenbin

Spokesman, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Meanwhile, Wang said that Beijing and Washington are planning to hold the second Methane and Non-Carbon Dioxide Greenhouse Gas Summit during COP29, and are looking forward to holding the China-U.S> Regional High-Level event on Subnational Climate Change in Berkeley, California on May 29-30.
