India, China Say Extending Kyoto Not Part of Debate at UN Talks

Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- India and China said extension of greenhouse gas emissions cuts under the Kyoto Protocol, short-term finance and technology transfer from rich to poor countries are not up for negotiation in United Nations climate change talks in Mexico this week.

Officials from India, China, South Africa and Brazil outlined their demands at a news conference today in Cancun, where high-level negotiations are set to begin tomorrow.

The countries will do “all that we need” to do to ensure success at the talks in Cancun, though issues around the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, climate finance and technology transfer are “three non-negotiables as far as we are concerned,” India Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said.
