BRUSSELS (AP) The European Union has voiced regret at the U.S. governments decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement and expressed hopes that one of the worlds biggest CO2 emitters will backpedal on its decision and rejoin.
European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said today that the global deal signed in 2015 remains the most important international agreement on climate change and insisted that the EU will continue to fight global climate change under this legal framework.
Despite the U.S. departure, Andreeva added that the 28-member bloc will continue working with various U.S.-based entities and stakeholders who remain committed to the deal.
