BEIJING, Nov. 25 -- China has called for the upcoming Paris Climate Conference to be realistic about the different capabilities and responsibilities among developed and developing countries.

The country hopes the gathering of world leaders later this month will stick to the principles outlined in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

"The principles of equity, common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities should be highlighted as they reflect the fact that developed countries have made a greater historical contribution to climate change," said Liu.

The conference should push for more concrete actions from developed countries, who are expected to honor their commitments to offer financing and technology to developing countries, he added.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the opening ceremony of the conference and express China's proposals on countering climate change.
