Chinese President Xi Jinping urged countries to work together to reduce their carbon emissions at a US-led summit on Thursday.

“We must be committed to multilateralism,” Xi said. He added that there should also be a commitment “to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities.”

He said developed countries should increase their ambitions on addressing climate issues, while helping less-developed nations speed up their shift to low-carbon growth.

Reducing carbon emissions is one of the few areas ijn which China and the US have said they could cooperate on, CNBC reported.

The Chinese leader also pointed to a joint statement the US and China released at the weekend on how the two countries would work together to “tackle the climate crisis.” The statement came after two days of negotiations between both sides in Shanghai regarding climate.

“China looks forward to working with the international community, including the United States, to jointly advance global environmental governance,” Xi said.

On national measures to fight climate change, Xi said China would “strictly control coal-fired generation projects” and limit increases in coal consumption over the next five years, with a phase down over the subsequent five years.

China announced last year that it would reach peak carbon emissions by 2030.
