COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said on Monday that his government had not tabled a proposal for an agreement on fighting global warming for next month’s U.N. climate conference in Copenhagen.

“The Danish government has not put forward a proposal,” he told reporters.

Reuters in New Delhi on Monday saw some draft Danish texts that included a halving of world emissions by 2050. Denmark’s minister for the conference also said earlier that “consultations are based on a variety of draft text proposals.”

Rasmussen said that Denmark was consulting with all countries and a compromise proposal for an agreement would come only later. He said Denmark, as host of the conference, was working for a deal in line with a goal of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial times.
