Doha, Dec 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Poland has been officially named the host of the next round of UN climate talks in 2013.

The decision was adopted Friday by negotiators from over 190 countries who gathered two weeks ago in Doha, capital of Qatar, for the current round of talks.

Deeply divided on funding for poor countries and the fate of unused carbon emission permits, the participants of the Doha conference failed to yield a global climate pact to curb emissions of greenhouse gases.
