Head of the Chinese delegation to the talks Su Wei said Saturday the Copenhagen Accord could offer important political guidance for future UN climate change talks but it could not replace the two-track negotiating process set by the Bali Action Plan.

The accord must not be established as the third track of future negotiations, he said.

One issue at discord during the ongoing talks is how to proceed with the negotiations, with some countries proposing to go ahead wholly on the basis of the Copenhagen Accord.

At the first round of talks since the Copenhagen conference, negotiators here are to determine how to proceed with future talks and how many additional talks are needed in the run-up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Mexico, which is scheduled to be held from November 29 to December 10.
