U.S. climate envoy John Kerry told the European Union he was open to coordinating with the bloc in a bid to encourage other nations to step up their commitments in the fight against global warming.

Kerry spoke with European foreign affairs ministers during their meeting on Monday as the U.S. seeks to regain its position as a climate leader. A renewed green alliance with the 27-nation EU could help maintain momentum before key international climate talks in Glasgow in November.
