The US has sent an official notice stating its intention to retreat from the Paris climate change agreement. UN Secretary-General António Guterres got the notification regarding US’ exit from the pact, unless more profitable conditions could be suggested. 

A country that has entered the Paris agreement has the right to withdraw from it three years after the date on which the deal enters into force in that country. 


The US entered the deal on 3rd September 2016, and it has entered into force on the 4th of November 2016.


A spokesman for the UN said the Secretary-General accepts any US effort to re-engage in the Paris Agreement, and that it is crucial that the US remain a leading figure in climate and sustainable development.
