"So far our belief is the global effort put on the table for mitigation is not enough... more needs to be done."
At the same joint press conference with Reinfeldt, Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao countered that China's pledge last week to slow growth in greenhouse gas emissions marked "a major contribution to global efforts."
"China places high importance on the upcoming Copenhagen conference. I will attend to represent China," he said of December 7-18 global negotiations aimed at reaching a new climate change pact.
"China is willing to work to move the conference in the right direction," Wen added.
