United States only country to reject climate deal after Syria signs up

Yesterday, the Syrian government announced plans to join the Paris Climate Accord, leaving the U.S.as the lone country opposed to the deal.

On Oct. 23, Nicaragua announced it would join the Paris accord, despite its previous reservations.

President Donald Trump said in June that the U.S. would withdraw from the accord, saying it put the country at a disadvantage.

Overall, the Paris agreement seeks to limit a global rise in temperatures to "well below" two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times, ideally 1.5.

A statement from the State Department this summer saying that the USA had submitted its withdrawal request said the delegations would be sent to "ensure all future policy options remain open to the administration".

"I would like to affirm the Syrian Arab Republic's commitment to the Paris climate change accord", deputy Environment Minister Wadah Katmawi told a meeting of nearly 200 nations at the November 6-17 climate talks in Bonn, Germany.

"Now he'll be isolated from all nations", he said. Above, Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus this August.

Mr Trump has said he will pull out of the Paris agreement unless Washington can secure more favourable terms for American businesses and taxpayers.

Explaining the omission President Emmanuel Macron's office said the leaders invited were from "those countries that are committed to implementing the deal".

The UN is hosting the COP23 climate change conference this week in Bonn, Germany.

The treaty states that no countries can state that they will withdraw until November 2019, and that no countries can actually withdraw until Nov. 4, 2020, the day after the next presidential election. It's "very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States", he said.

Officially called the "One Planet Summit" in English, the event is also when Macron is going to announce the winners of his offer of a generous fellowship to USA climate scientists who come to do their research in France.

The same day, Macron said "wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again" and called on USA -based scientists to come to France to work on climate-related issues, in an unprecedented English-language speech from the French presidential palace.
