In a joint statement, China and the United States announced the formation of a bilateral working group to join efforts to combat energy transition and pollution. The notification was issued today, Wednesday (15).
Both countries expressed their support for a G20 declaration bringing together the world’s largest economies to triple global renewable energy capacity by 2030.
China and the US have pledged to work together in an agreement to combat plastic and methane pollution.
The task force was created as a result of a meeting between the two countries’ climate ambassadors, John Kerry and Xi Zhenhua, in California in the first week of November.
The Carbon Atlas survey, released during COP 27 in 2022, shows that China and the United States are the most polluting countries in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.
Meeting between Biden and Xi
This Wednesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden will meet for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum summit. The meeting will be held in the North American city of San Francisco.
One of the goals of the meeting, the White House says, is to reduce tensions and rivalries between the two countries and prevent noise from escalating into conflict.
In addition to trade and economic relations, Biden and Xi are expected to discuss the conflict in the Middle East, the invasion of Ukraine, and relations between Russia and North Korea. Also on the agenda is artificial intelligence and the use of Taiwan.
On Tuesday (14), President Joe Biden said he hoped to resume normal contact with China, including military-to-military contact.
