(Climate pact) Europe promises commitment

Friday, June 02, 2017

Top European leaders pledged Thursday to keep fighting against global warming and they rejected Donald Trump's suggestion that the deal could later be renegotiated. 

The leaders of France, Germany and Italy said in a joint statement that they regretted the United States' decision to withdraw from the accord, but affirmed "our strongest commitment'' to implement its measures and encouraged "all our partners to speed up their action to combat climate change.''-AP
