Syria Signs Paris Climate Accord Leaving US As Only Country Opposed To The Climate Change Deal





Syria has reportedly signed the Paris climate change agreement, leaving the United States as the only country in the world opposed to the landmark climate change deal, reports The Independent.

Nicaragua signed the agreement last month, which left the U.S. and Syria as the only two countries not supporting the deal.



The Paris accord was signed by nearly 200 countries in December 2015 in a US-led effort to curb global greenhouse gas emissions and limit global warming to within 2 degrees Celsius.

In June, President Trump announced he would be withdrawing the United States from the agreement, calling it “unfair.”

“The bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States,” Trump said at the time.
