DOHA - Head of Chinese delegation to the ongoing UN climate conference in Doha, Xie Zhenhua, presented China's first climate documentary to top UN climate official Christiana Figueres.

The documentary, named "Warm and Cold, We Share Together," describes in 12 episodes the relationship between the change of ecological environment and human civilization from both historical and realistic perspectives.

It calls on the mankind to take the responsibility to deal with the consequences of environment degradation and adopt a path of sustainable development.

Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, hailed China's climate actions in recent years and expressed confidence that China will meet and even exceed its anti- warming ambitions set in the new five-year-development plan (2011- 2016).

Hundreds of scientists, experts and officials were interviewed during the filming of the documentary.

On Saturday, the Doha climate conference entered an extra day due to deep divisions among delegates on the draft texts produced by previous negotiations.

Admitting the texts are not satisfactory to everyone, president of the conference, Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah, urged the delegates to work in a spirit of compromise and reach a balanced package of agreements by the end of the day.
