Nations urge United States to stay in Paris climate agreement


Climate change negotiators are meeting in the German city of Bonn. They have called for the United States to stay in the Paris agreement. Delegates from some 190 countries and territories yesterday kicked off talks on rules to implement the accord. The agreement, which took effect in last November, calls for all countries to set targets to cut their greenhouse gas emissions.

US has sent a team to the meeting, but it is not clear how long the world’s second largest emitter will remain engaged in the negotiations. US President Donald Trump signed an executive order to overhaul measures for tackling climate change that were introduced by his predecessor, Barack Obama. Trump has signaled that he will soon decide whether to pull his country out of the Paris Agreement.
Ambassador Nazhat Shameem Khan of Fiji, which holds Presidency of the climate change framework COP23, said she is looking forward to working with the US on global warming. The meeting will continue till 18th of this month.
