Former French prime minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin said on Dec 3 that developed countries should share their experience and technologies in reducing greenhouse gas emissions with developing countries.

Developed countries emitted a lot of greenhouse gases in the past, and they have advantages in research and development in clean energy technology, Raffarin said, noting that the countries have reduced the use of coal and other fossil fuels.

"Developed countries should not force developing countries to cut gas emissions. Instead, they should help developing countries in this area," Raffarin said.

China's economic growth is important to the world economic recovery, Raffarin said.

It is encouraging that China is finding proper solutions to deal with climate change, he said.

"France and China should further boost cooperation in developing new technology and tackling climate change," he added.
