The secretary-general said he held a "very constructive" telephone conversation with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on climate change before coming to Bali for the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

The Chinese delegation has been active in the UN conference, said the UN chief while meeting with Xie Zhenhua, deputy head of China's National Development and Reform Commission.

During the meeting, Xie also briefed the UN Secretary-General on China's position on climate change, on efforts undertaken and achievements so far.
