Global climate talks hosted by the United Nations in Copenhagen, Denmark resumed officially on Monday after a divide between richer and poorer nations sidelined meetings for three hours, Bloomberg reported.

Concerns by African countries that developed countries want to get rid of the Kyoto accord, which limits greenhouse-gas emissions by developed nations, were the reason for a postponement in talks made earlier this morning by U.N. climate change authorities.

World leaders are gathering in Copenhagen to seek to limit the amount of warming on earth to no more than two degrees Celsius.
