– It is extremely difficult, but not impossible

says the Norwegian Minister of Environment and Development, Erik Solheim. With only to days left of the COP15, Erik Solheim, gave a briefing to the Norwegian delegation, along with the NGOs and IGOs. Solheim gave the status of the negotiations at a café in downtown Copenhagen, because of the Bella Center being closed to the NGOs from Wednesday on. He informed that the most important now is the question of what the advanced developing countries, like China. India, Brazil and Indonesia shall contribute with. Further he enlightened that it is extremely difficult to meet each other’s demands but still not impossible. One of things that have had a positive outcome at COP15, according to Solheim, is the question about deforestation.
