Copenhagen, 15 December - Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is urging developed as well as emerging economies to compromise and show more flexibility in Copenhagen.
His reaction comes as ‘consensus’ looks difficult due to stalled negotiations in the Danish city.
"Otherwise, the global climate summit is at risk of "failure", the Prime Minister told Sky News.
Mr Rudd, who has been appointed a deal-brokering “friend of the chair” by the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, has been forced to head to Copenhagen without parliamentary approval of his proposed carbon trade laws.
On Tuesday Rudd will meet with his Japanese counterpart Yukio Hatoyama as well as Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada en route to theo UN climate summit in Copenhagen.
