Senior officials from almost 200 nations approved a draft text of a U.N. climate deal on Saturday after four years' work as the basis for ministers to try to resolve hundreds of points of disagreement next week. Major political issues are yet to be resolved," Laurence Tubiana, French climate envoy, told the meeting. The idea is that the text lays out options, ranging from a long-term goal for slowing climate change to rising climate finance for developing nations, that can be resolved by ministers next week at talks lasting until Friday.
