Paris climate accord: Syria to sign up, isolating US

The US is set to become isolated in its stance on the Paris climate agreement, after Syria said it was preparing to join the deal. The Paris deal unites the world’s nations in tackling climate change. Syria and Nicaragua were the only nations outside the deal when it was agreed in 2015. Nicaragua signed in October.

In June the US said it would withdraw, but the rules of the agreement state that this cannot be done until 2020. Meanwhile, French officials said US President Donald Trump had not been invited to December’s climate summit in Paris.

An aide to French President Emmanuel Macron said more than 100 countries have been invited to the summit, which is aimed at “building coalitions” with finance and business to further the accord.
