The premier stressed that China is willing to strengthen communication and consultation with the US side to enhance mutual trust, and push for a fair, reasonable and practical deal at the Copenhagen conference, thus delivering hope and confidence to the whole world.

US President Obama hailed China's emission reduction target as ambitious,  impressive and important for the entire world.

Obama also appreciated China's willingness to have transparency on its voluntary emission reduction measures. The United States is ready to work with China for a successful Copenhagen climate change conference and to strengthen long-term cooperation in the fight against climate change.

During Wen's meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh the same day, the two leaders agreed to further develop the strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries.

Premier Wen said that unity, cooperation and common development of China and India, which had a combined population of 2.5 billion people, were critical for the peace, stability and prosperity of Asia.

Singh agreed with Wen on the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities." He said India was satisfied with its coordination with China in climate change negotiations, and was willing to promote such communication and cooperation.

Arriving in the Danish capital on Wednesday evening, the premier attended the UN climate change conference and exchanged views with a number of world leaders during his three-day stay here. He returned to  Beijing on Friday.
