"It still perplexes me why some people keep trying to make an issue about China (in this regard)," Wen told a press conference after the closing of the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislature.

"The issue of climate change concerns human survival, the interests of all countries, and equity and justice in our international communities," he said.

"We are fully justified to stick to the principle of 'common but differentiated responsibilities,'" he said.
