ROME (Reuters) - Britain wants Australia to commit more on tackling climate change, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said on Saturday, stepping up the pressure on several countries before the United Nations climate summit next week.

The spokesman said Australia had come forward with commitments on reaching net zero carbon emissions but Britain believed it could can do more on areas such as coal.

"We do believe Australia can do more on areas such as coal and we will continue to have those discussions," he told reporters.
