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.

Deutsche Welle said Merkel told reporters that a strategy that works for all nations needed to be in place when the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.

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