China made important contributions to the Sharm el-Sheikh Climate Change Conference and will continue to promote a fair and reasonable global climate governing system that features win-win cooperation, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said on Monday.

COP27, which concluded in the Egyptian city of Sharm el-Sheikh on Sunday, reached a package of relatively balanced outcomes and gave out positive signals of multilateralism and cooperation to tackle climate change, Mao said.

The outcomes reflect the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities, Mao said, adding the conference responded effectively to developing countries' urgent needs by deciding to set up a loss and damage fund for vulnerable countries.

China, which attached great importance to the conference, did all it could to support Egypt in hosting it, Mao said.

The Chinese delegation participated in talks on about 100 issues, coordinated closely with all other parties and upheld firmly the shared interests of developing countries, the spokeswoman said, adding China will continue to take part actively in global governance to tackle climate change.

On the other hand, developed countries again failed at the conference to deliver on the goal of mobilizing $100 billion every year to help developing countries tackle climate change by 2020, and there is not yet a clear roadmap for doubling the adaptation fund, Mao pointed out.

"This does not help in building trust between the South and the North," Mao said.
