Syria signs Paris climate agreement

And while Syria was not present for the initial climate negotiations, the country's Deputy Minister of Local Administration and Environment, M. Wadah Katmawi, said that it too will now ratify the accord, during a meeting at the start of the COP23 climate change conference in Bonn, Germany.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has expressed doubts that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the prime cause of global warming, announced in June that he meant to pull out and instead promote U.S. coal and oil industries. They tweeted that to troll the Americans.

The report comes after Nicaragua last month signed the agreement, which left the us and Syria as the only two countries not supporting it.

"As if it wasn't already crystal clear, every single other country in the world is moving forward together to tackle the climate crisis, while Donald Trump has isolated the United States on the world stage in an embarrassing and risky position", an environmental NGO, the Sierra Club, relayed in a statement - criticising the United State's position.

On June 2, former Secretary of State John Kerry of the Obama administration called the US withdraw from the Paris agreement "one of the most cynical and frankly ignorant and unsafe, self-destructive steps that I've seen in my entire lifetime in public life".

The U.S. did not set up a pavilion at this year's meeting - the only developed country not to do so, according to Deutsche Welle, a German news agency.

The Trump administration will not be able to formally extricate the USA from the climate agreement until 2020.

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

"We are joining with our partners from every part of the world to do what needs to be done to prevent irreversible climate change", he said. The hottest on record was 2016, followed by 2015.
