The draft drawn up by world leaders at the Copenhagen climate summit is "a solution based on values that funneled six million people in Europe into furnaces," said Sudanese delegate Lumumba Di-Aping on Saturday morning, amid what seemed to be an impregnable stalemate in negotiations. Addressing the UN plenary, Di-Aping further stated that the agreement was in effect "asking Africa to sign a suicide pact, an incineration pact in order to maintain the economic dependence of a few countries." He added, in a clear biblical reference, that poor states were "being offered 30 pieces of silver to betray" their people. The Sudanese delegate to the climate talks also serves as head of the G-77, a UN bloc comprised of developing countries with common economic interests.
