TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga will consider attending a global climate summit proposed by U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, part of a push to bring likeminded nations in line with Japan's goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

Suga will seek to work with the U.S. and Europe while pursuing dialogue with China, the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, which President Xi Jinping has pledged to make carbon neutral before 2060.
