Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said here Saturday that his country will endeavor to seek "tangible" results from the United Nations climate change negotiation in Bangkok next week.

Thailand is honored to host the United Nations Climate Change Talks, slated for Sept. 28 to Oct. 9, Abhisit said in his address to the annual debate of the General Assembly, which entered its fourth day Saturday at the UN Headquarters in New York.

"We will spare no efforts in ensuring that this round of negotiations will make tangible progress towards a successful Copenhagen Conference in December," he said.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has repeatedly urged that there are only 15 negotiating days left before the start of the Copenhagen climate conference in December, referring to the Bangkok talks and the following session in the Spanish city of Barcelona in early November.

On Tuesday, the United Nations convened the Summit on Climate Change, with the largest-ever gathering of world leaders to discuss possible actions to tackle the global challenge in order to inject a political impetus into the impeded climate negotiations.

Climate change can only be successfully tackled through global cooperation, said Abhisit, adding the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the core for international negotiations and cooperation in this area, guided bythe principles of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities.

He said Thailand welcomes the commitments expressed by major economies during the UN climate change summit, in particular in setting clear goals and targets for their action, adding that Thailand will continue to pursue environmentally friendly growth on its own part.
