The up-coming climate change conference in Paris shows that the international community "stands together" against terrorism.

That's according to Wu Hongbo, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs.

He praised France's "courage" for going ahead with the COP21 conference which begins on Monday, in spite of the deadly terrorist attacks of November 13.

It's hoped that world leaders will agree on a way to limit greenhouse gas emissions, and keep global temperatures from rising beyond 2 degrees Celsius.

Mr Wu spoke to Maoqi Li.
