BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The United States has said it will not meet the European Union this week to reopen talks on fighting global warming, a French government spokeswoman said on Monday.

The spokeswoman made the announcement to journalists during a meeting of EU environment ministers in Brussels.

Norway had offered to host a meeting at the end of this week to allow the two sides to patch up the differences which sank United Nations talks on cutting "greenhouse gases" last month.
