China is willing to contribute more to the fight against climate change, as it aims to bring carbon emissions to a peak by 2030, and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 with more forceful policies and measures, Chinese President Xi Jinping said Tuesday.  

Xi made the remarks in a speech at the General Debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly via video link.

He pointed out that one of the lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic is that humanity must pursue the green development path and a green lifestyle.

The Paris Agreement on climate change represents the overall direction of global transformation towards green and low carbon development, he said, urging all countries to take resolute action to protect the planet.  

He also called on all countries to adopt innovative, coordinated, green, open, and shared development concepts, grasping the historic opportunity brought by a new round of technological innovation and industrial revolution, and promoting the green recovery of the global economy.
