US withdraws from Paris climate accord
President Donald Trump says moves to negotiate new
The United States has announced to withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
The announcement was made by President Donald Trump at the White House.
He said moves to negotiate a new "fair" deal that would not disadvantage US businesses and workers would begin.
The Paris agreement commits the US and one hundred and eighty-seven other countries to keeping global temperatures rises well below two degrees Celsius.
Only Syria and Nicaragua did not sign the deal.
