China’s special climate envoy Xie Zhenhua said the U.S. is “fully responsible” for the suspension of bilateral climate talks, in response to U.S. counterpart John Kerry’s criticism that this decision made by Beijing after Nancy Pelosi’s Taiwan visit “punishes the world,” according to state media.

Although such talks with the U.S. have been suspended, China has consistently been “a proactive contributor to the global climate process by persistently supporting other developing nations” in addressing the issue, according to Xie in an interview with China Daily.
