White House Denies Report That US Will Stay In Paris Climate Agreement

At the time, it was seen as another abrogation of the United States' preeminent role as a global leader.

Canete said there would be a meeting on the sidelines of next week's UN General Assembly with American representatives "to assess what is the real U.S. position", but noted "it's a message which is quite different to the one we heard from President Trump in the past".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated that sentiment.

Even if the USA remained, the Trump administration would not have had to do anything if they didn't want to. Details may change. This story will be updated, and NCRM will likely publish follow-up stories on this news.
