The Swedish ambassador to China, Mikael Lindstrom said Sweden, which will take over the half-year rotating EU presidency from the Czech Republic in July, hopes the Copenhagen conference in December will achieve a new "regime" to address global warming.

"Copenhagen is an extremely important occasion for the world to find ways to tackle the causes of climate change," he said.
