Climate change talks in Copenhagen are likely to end in a "roadmap" for future talks, with no legally binding agreement concluded, presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich said on Tuesday.

The 15th UN climate change conference, a result of two-year international talks on a binding treaty to cut the global emission of greenhouse gases, opened on Monday in Copenhagen.

"There will be no legally binding agreement," he said. "It is likely to be a political statement, a number of state-level obligations and a roadmap of the negotiation process."

During the two weeks of talks, states are to agree on three main climate change points, including urgent measures to tackle climate change, obligations to cut emissions of greenhouse gases and general ways to cut harmful emissions.

Dvorkovich said that the Russian delegation at the talks would be led by First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov.

Alexei Kokorin, the head of WWF Russia Climate and Energy Program, earlier said on the sidelines of the Copenhagen conference that countries negotiating a new climate change deal are unlikely to strike a detailed agreement and are now primarily negotiating the status of future talks.
