It is possible for us, but it depends on the negotiations,” Su Wei, China’s lead negotiator, said – speaking in English – at a media briefing on the sidelines of the two-week talks in South Africa, Reuters reports. “It is more reasonable for China to set a post-2020 target to restrict its carbon emissions, rather than a reduction goal,” Xu Huaqing, a researcher from the Energy Research Institute affiliated with the National Development and Reform Commission, the government body that oversees climate change issues in China, told China Daily.
