The White House has denied the claims made by EU officials that US has agreed to stay in the Paris Climate Accord, stating that its position remains unchanged until it gets more favourable terms. This statement comes after ministers from 30 countries gathered at Montreal ahead of the United Nations climate summit in November.
The report that appeared on Wall Street Journal, mentioned European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete as saying that the US would not pull out of the Paris accord and review the terms of the deal.
However, according to the Guardian, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “There has been no change in the United States’ position on the Paris agreement. As the President has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favorable to our country.”
In June, Trump called the climate pact a bad deal for US and declared about pulling out US from the Paris Accord, as per his campaign promise. This caused major uproar among the world leaders and the science community.
