A clutch of emerging economies including South Africa, China and India have forged a united front to put pressure on developed countries at next month's climate change negotiations in Copenhagen.

Reuters reports that over two days of quietly arranged talks in Beijing, the countries said they had reached agreement on major issues, including the need for the West to provide finance and technology to help developing nations combat global warming.

The meeting was attended by senior officials from China, India, Brazil, South Africa and Sudan. China is the world's top greenhouse gas emitter and India is the fourth largest, while Brazil is also a leading emitter, mainly through deforestation.
