THE HAGUE (Reuters) - A standoff between the United States and the European Union hardened on Tuesday at the center of an international conference on the threat of global warming, with neither side appearing ready for a compromise.

"So far, I haven't seen anyone move their position by one centimeter," said Raul Estrada, Argentina's special representative for the environment.

Estrada chaired the U.N. meeting in Kyoto three years ago which laid out the basis for emission cuts which are supposed to be finalized at the two-week climate conference in the Hague.
