Climate Summit Host Cautions Nations Against 'Zero-sum Game'

Berlin (AP) -- Egypt's foreign minister called on rich and developing countries to show readiness to compromise at the U.N. climate talks he is set to chair in November, saying Tuesday that the negotiations shouldn't be a “zero-sum game” between wealthier and poorer nations.

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry spoke as officials from 40 countries held a two-day gathering in Berlin billed as an opportunity to rebuild trust after technical talks last month achieved little progress on major issues such as climate aid for developing countries.
