President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao: Presidential Phone Call

This week also featured a telephone call between President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao, which both countries reported to be focused on climate change. The reported content needless to say was about pushing for a successful deal at Copenhagen. What was most important was that in the midst of all the things happening globally in the world now and politically in the U.S. the two leaders kept the climate priority high on the agenda.

President Hu reportedly suggested that increased cooperation on climate change could improve Sino-U.S. relations. A new report by the U.S. Congressional-Executive Commission on China suggests the same, if not in so many words.
