China will insist on keeping its greenhouse gas output free of any binding climate treaty fetters, a senior Chinese diplomat said, dismissing an earlier report that suggested a softening of Beijing's position as a "misunderstanding." The recent two-week climate change meeting in Cancun, Mexico showed an ever-broader belief that a legally binding deal is far off, partly because of opposition by China and the United States, the world's top emitters of greenhouse gases.
