Mexico wants all countries to get involved in UN Climate ConferenceChina
Mexico's climate ambassador Luis Alfonso de Alba Thursday said that all the countries must support the work at the forth-coming United Nations Climate Conference in Cancun.
De Alba is in Stockholm to discuss the situation in international climate cooperation at the Cancun conference which is a continuation of the Copenhagen Conference in December 2009.
Cancun conference will be held between November 29 and December 10.
"We will continue to make use of the attention by world politicians at the Copenhagen conference. Copenhagen has realized known success on the one hand, but on the other hand, it has problem in the meeting formality," de Alba said.
"We have a very clear understanding that this is a process that needs to have everybody involved, not only the major (greenhouse gas) emitters," said de Alba who is a former Mexican ambassador to the United Nations and first president of the UN Human Rights Council.
De Alba is very clear about the complexity of the international climate conference.
"As the president of the climate conference, we have the task to reach consensus among 194 participating countries. All must feel either satisfied or not satisfied," de Alba said.
"One problem with Copenhagen meeting was that the expectation for the conference was too high. The meeting reached progress, but the conference didn't end with a 'big bang,' or an agreement," he said.
Swedish climate ambassador Staffan Tillander stressed Sweden's active roll in international climate cooperation.
De Alba came to Stockholm after attending a climate negotiation meeting in Bonn. He has been traveling to many countries lobbying for the Cancun climate conference.
