WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. climate envoy John Kerry on Wednesday said he plans to visit China in the coming weeks, one day after Chinese leader Xi Jinping said Beijing would not build new coal-fired power plants abroad as part of global efforts to combat climate change.

Kerry, who is a former secretary of State and currently leads President Joe Biden’s Climate Agenda, stated that “I will be going back home to China sometime in the next week.”

He said he believed Biden and Xi would meet some time, but didn’t know the exact date.

Kerry also reiterated his support of Xi’s coal announcement and said it was a sign that China is serious about tackling global warming.

On Tuesday, Xi told the United Nations General Assembly it would no longer start coal projects in other countries but offered no details.
