Asked what the Prime Minister was hoping to achieve in the meeting with Prime Minister Meles, the PMS said he wouldn’t give specific objectives for each meeting. The Prime Minister thought it was important as part of the Copenhagen discussions that developing and developed nations came together. There had to be a shared agenda.

By getting there early the Prime Minister hoped to start the kind of discussions that would need to have taken place before a deal was done. The Prime Minister believed that he could help to make a difference.

Put that thousands of environmental group delegates had been barred from the conference centre and was the Prime Minister concerned about that, the PMS said that he was not aware of that. Clearly, at big events such as this, there were significant security implications and it was for those who organised the event to make a judgement as to what was appropriate.

Asked whether the Anglo-French Rainforest Summit was still taking place, the PMS said that the Prime Minister was not going, but it was likely that President Sarkozy would go ahead with it.

Asked who the Prime Minister would be having bilaterals with in Copenhagen, the PMS said that the Prime Minister would be seeing Prime Minister Meles again, he would see Prime Minister Rudd, Prime Minister Stoltenberg, Prime Minister Rasmussen and Ban Ki Moon.
