China hopes that renewed cooperation on climate change between China and the United States will usher in a positive "climate change" to Sino-American relations, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sunday.

Even though China and the US and the European Union are in different stages of development and face different challenges, they share the same mission in coping with climate change, he said.

Wang urged enhanced communication and coordination between the three sides and that they play a leading role in the international community, he said, adding that China welcomes the US' return to the Paris Agreement and expects that the US will shoulder its responsibility and make its due contribution, he added.

He noted China will host the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to Convention on Biological Diversity, also known as COP 15, in Kunming, Southwest China's Yunnan province. China is ready to work with all parties to draw a new blueprint for global biodiversity conservation in the next decade.
