Premier Wen Jiabao has left Copenhagen for home after attending the climate summit there. Earlier, the Chinese premier called for common but differentiated responsibilities to build international cooperation to fight global warming.

In his speech at the opening session of the leaders' meeting of the UN climate change conference, Wen Jiabao says China has made unremitting efforts and a positive contribution to the global fight against climate change through energy conservation and pollution reduction.

He says China has not attached any condition to its target for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions nor has it linked it to the target of any other country.
