In the last few days of the World Climate Summit in Copenhagen Denmark’s Prime Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, has appointed a group of political leaders to help close the deal.

One of the summit’s main challenges has been how to finance climate measures in developing countries, and no treaty can be signed without agreement on this issue.

State Secretary Torbjørn Giæver Eriksen at Prime Minister’s office confirmed to Dagsavisen that Jens Stoltenberg (Ap) has been given special responsibility for the task.

Other members of Rasmussen’s appointees include Britain's Gordon Brown, Germany's Angela Merkel, and France's Nicolas Sarkozy.

Stoltenberg is to arrive in Copenhagen today and, according to VG, he’ll be using a private jet instead of taking one of 17 scheduled departures from Oslo.
