orld summit on global warming in December in Bali.
Voicing a sentiment shared by many Asian nations, which oppose sharp cuts, Yang said that China already had its own targets and made clear that Beijing believes it is up to industrialized countries to cut world emissions.
"China is a developing country, and per capita emission of greenhouse gases in China is much lower than in developed nations," he said. "China is really in need of development. A substantial number of people in China are living under the poverty line."
The demonstration, where radicals from several European nations rallied, was described by organizers as part of the build-up to the Group of Eight summit, to be hosted by Germany June 6-8 in the beach resort of Heiligendamm.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke out Saturday in support of the right to demonstrate peacefully and voiced sympathy for environmentalist calls for deep cuts in emissions, one of her key demands at the G8 summit.
German authorities, who were also treating Monday's event as practice for next month, said they would crack down hard on any rioting. Monday's demonstrators found themselves marching between a cordon of riot police accompanying the procession.
Organizers voiced frustration at the cordon and said that police barriers made it difficult for the crowd to disperse when the event finished in the face of a line of police blocking the route.
Later, hundreds of far-left demonstrators wearing ski masks built a barricade and set it ablaze in a counterculture section of Hamburg.
Police extinguished the fire, shoved barricade aside and arrested 24 demonstrators on suspicion of violence including attacks on security officers and making firebombs, a police spokesman said. Another 64 people were detained.
Two demonstrators and two police were reported injured in the incidents.Page: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
