The United States is sending a delegation to the 13th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change that will take place in Bali, Indonesia from December 3-14, the White House announced on Monday.

Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs PaulaDobriansky will lead the U.S. delegation. "The United States is committed to advancing negotiations in Bali, leading to a new international approach on energy security and climate change," said a statement released by the White House.

"In recognition of the importance the United States attaches to this conference", the White House is sending Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality James Connaughton to join in leading the Ministerial sessions on December 12-14, the statement said.

Connaughton is a senior advisor to President George W. Bush and his personal representative to the Major Economies Meeting on Energy Security and Climate Change, which was convened by the Bush administration in late September in Washington.

The White House is also sending U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Susan Schwab for a December 8-9 Trade Ministers meeting and Under Secretary of Treasury for International Affairs David H.McCormick for a December 10-11 Finance Ministers meeting.
