Following those successful Indonesian negotiations, Rudd is invited to befriend a chair:

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will play an increased role in helping to secure a deal at the Copenhagen international climate change talks.

Mr Rudd has been asked by Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen to serve as a friend to the chair – along with Mexico and the United Nations – in the lead up to the talks in December.
