UN climate talks acknowledge Copenhagen accord

Copenhagen: UN climate talks avoided failure on Saturday by formally acknowledging a new US-led accord for combating global warming despite opposition from several nations.

“The conference of the parties takes note of the Copenhagen Accord," said a final decision at the 193-nation talks that stopped short of endorsing the deal.

UN talks are meant to operate by consensus and several countries had spoken against the US-led plan. The decision would list the countries that were in favour of the deal and those against.
