Denmark PM Negative on EU Climate Change Deal
Denmark's prime minister says he does not think a legally binding deal on climate change will be agreed upon at a December summit in Copenhagen.
Lars Loekke Rasmussen spoke ahead of an EU summit at which climate change will be one of the main topics, the BBC reported.
EU leaders must also decide how to secure the Czech Republic's ratification of the Lisbon Treaty.
The treaty would create a full-time EU president, and leaders are expected to discuss who could fill the role.
December's eagerly anticipated United Nations' Copenhagen Climate Summit will attempt to hammer out a new global climate treaty to replace the UN Kyoto Protocol.
But Rasmussen said he did not believe a final deal on reducing greenhouse emissions could be reached at the meeting.
