China is on track to uphold commitments under the Paris climate accord, but some developed countries need to show their sincerity to push the ongoing dialogue forward, according to China's top climate envoy.

"We are capable of achieving more than what we pledged in the Paris Agreement," said Xie Zhenhua, China's special representative on climate change. "The thing is, the Paris Agreement cannot be fulfilled without efforts from everyone within."

Nearly 200 economies agreed in Paris in December 2015 to curb carbon dioxide emissions, with the aim of limiting the rise in average global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2050, compared with preindustrial levels.
