COPENHAGEN, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Thursday China hoped the ongoing climate change conference would achieve the best outcome.

In a meeting with Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in the morning, Wen said he appreciated the efforts made by Denmark in hosting the climate change conference, which has entered the final stage.

At this stage, all countries must show a broad perspective, act on the basis of reality, respect each other's concerns, stick to the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities," honor existing commitments, and reach consensus quickly in the talks, Wen said.

Only by doing this would all parties concerned be able to give the world a final document which could best reflect the common political will of the international community and the efforts every country had made in coping with climate change, and inject new momentum for future international cooperation, he added.

The Chinese premier said, "China will continue to staunchly support the hosting country in its work and engage in close communications and coordination with all other sides for a best result."
