BERLIN, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel left for the United Nations Saturday after urging wider cooperation on climate change.

Merkel said industrialized and developing nations should both play a role in reducing emissions linked to global warming.

Merkel was on her way to the United Nations where she was to speak about climate change at the General Assembly on Monday.
