China makes concessions to Germany on electric car quotas

"We are both ready to contribute to stability in the world", the Chinese premier told reporters, echoing comments made by Merkel who said Germany should expand its partnership with China at such a time.

Russian Federation joined the chorus speaking out in favour of the climate accord.

"I understand that if they decide to pull out it will be disappointing but I really don't think this will change the course of mankind", European Commission vice president for energy, Maros Sefcovic, said at a briefing.

The agreement calls for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by all involved countries starting in 2020 and other commitments to an worldwide fight against climate change. Since then she has hosted Li and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The European Commission president on Wednesday said that it was the "duty of Europe" to stand up to the USA if President Donald Trump decides to pull his country out of the Paris climate change accord.

The European Union and China, meanwhile, will reaffirm their commitment to the Paris climate change accord this week regardless of whether the USA pulls out of the pact, a senior EU official said.

Juncker said: "If the US president pulls out of the Paris agreement, and he will in the next days or hours, then it is Europe's duty to say that that is not how it works".

European Union survey respondents said they saw little immediate hope for change, with only 15% expressing confidence that regulatory barriers would fall over the next 5 years; 40% said they thought barriers would increase.

"No matter whether other countries' positions may change, we will continue to uphold" a model of sustainable development, Hua said at a regularly scheduled news conference. India, the fourth-largest carbon-emitter, signed it the next month.

Mr Trump is expected to announce his decision on Thursday afternoon U.S. time (8pm BST).

Germany is the first stop for Mr Li on a European tour that comes amid growing concern in Germany over some of Mr Trump's policies, especially on climate change and protectionism.

The EU-China summit follows a tense global tour by US President Donald Trump in which he spurned pleas by his European counterparts to adhere to the deal.

Trump promoted his announcement Wednesday night on Twitter, after a day in which USA allies around the world sounded alarms about the likely consequences of a US withdrawal.

The White House signaled that Trump was likely to decide on exiting the global pact - fulfilling one of his principal campaign pledges - though top aides were divided.

Everyone cautioned that no decision was final until Trump announced it.
