Alastair Harper, Green Alliance’s head of politics said:

“It’s significant that the Prime Minister is working with the Chinese Premier to achieve a global climate deal. It would seem that David Cameron has firmly rejected Tony Abbot’s recent invitation to join the naughty table on slowing climate action. Given that a deal is now clearly both the United States’ and China’s top diplomatic priority, we have chosen the right company for our economy and place in the world. To build on this, the Prime Minister should formally accept Ban Ki-Moon’s invitation to September’s world leaders summit in order to leave his mark on the talks to come.”
