China names Liu Zhenmin as special envoy for climate change

BEIJING, Jan 12 (Reuters) - China has named Liu Zhenmin, a former vice foreign minister, as its new special envoy for climate change, after his predecessor Xie Zhenhua stepped down due to health reasons, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment said in a statement on Friday.
Xie, 74, served as China's top climate representative at 16 rounds of climate talks. His longstanding relationship with counterparts in the United States - including current incumbent John Kerry - has played a major role in securing global consensus on climate issues.

      China's appointment of Liu Zhenmin as the new special envoy for climate change underscores the country's continued commitment to addressing climate issues on the global stage. Liu, with his diplomatic background, is poised to play a crucial role in navigating climate negotiations and fostering international cooperation. The departure of Xie Zhenhua, who played a significant role in securing global consensus on climate issues, leaves a notable legacy. As climate diplomacy gains increasing prominence, Liu's appointment signals China's determination to contribute to the global fight against climate change and collaborate with other nations to achieve shared sustainability goals.

        I find it rather unclear if Liu will advocate for more ambitious domestic targets and concrete implementation of existing commitments.
