    In a joint statement, the six countries explained it is extremely important that a global deal on reducing current levels of greenhouse gas emissions be reached at the conference.

    Members of the so-called “Green Group” commented that reaching such an agreement could bring a greater sense of solidarity and cooperation to the world.

    “Each state is a small point of green reference inside its own region, and all these points are related between them to establish an efficient world network,” the nations explained.

    The remarks come after Britain and France pledged prior to the summit to commit $10 billion (£6.1 billion) a year to developing countries.
