The first round of UN climate talks after the Copenhagen conference ended here early Monday morning, with negotiators agreeing to hold two more sessions in 2010.

The additional negotiations will be conducted in the second half of 2010 between the two previously scheduled meetings in June in Bonn and in Cancun, Mexico at the end of 2010.

The negotiators decided that the meetings will last at least one week each in a bid to reach an agreement on how to fight climate change. But the venues of the meetings was left undetermined.

The two working groups under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change also invited the chairs of the groups to prepare documents to facilitate future negotiations.

The talks dragged on from Friday to early Monday due to differences between developing and developed countries on how to deal with the outcomes of the Copenhagen conference.
