Rasmussen said the Danish side highly appreciated the targets China recently announced for greenhouse gas emissions control. "It is an important contribution" China had made in meeting the challenge of global climate change, the Danish prime minister said.

He said the Copenhagen conference had made some progress but much more remained to be done as lots of difficulties existed and must be tackled.

Rasmussen said the principles outlined by Wen were very important for the conference to have a fruitful conclusion. "They are a reflection of China's positive attitude to and efforts in promoting international cooperation in dealing with climate change," he said.

Rasmussen called on all other participating countries at the conference to take positive and responsible attitudes and act like China to work jointly for a good outcome.

Wen arrived here Wednesday evening to attend the leaders' meeting of the U.N. climate change conference.
