China's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Zheng Zeguang, met Alok Sharma, the UK's president-designate for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP 26, on Wednesday.

They shared an in-depth discussion about Sharma's upcoming visit to China and China-UK cooperation in areas including the response to climate change and action on biodiversity.

The pair agreed the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, or COP15, which is set to be hosted by China in October, and COP26, which will be hosted by the UK in November, are important events in global ecological conservation and environmental governance, according to an embassy statement.

China and the UK should increase communication, coordination and mutual support, and work with all relevant parties to achieve positive outcomes at both conferences, the statement said.

The statement concluded the two countries should also encourage companies to step up practical cooperation at the bilateral level and in third countries, in areas including new energy and green finance.
