Obama meets with China’s president as climate summit begins

PARIS — President Obama kicked off his day at the Paris climate summit with a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, hailing the two nations for their work on climate change but urging greater Chinese cooperation on cyber-crime and “maritime” issues that include China’s military construction on disputed reefs in the South China Sea.

In remarks before the session, Obama stressed the importance of cooperation between the world’s two largest economies and greenhouse gas emitters, saying that “nowhere has that cooperation been more necessary and more fruitful” than on climate change.
