Scandanavian leaders scorn USA climate decision

One point that Tillerson may raise is that if the USA does withdraw from the agreement, it would join just two other countries in doing so: Nicaragua and Syria.

Guterres also pledged to work with developing countries to mobilize resources to tackle the impact of climate change and strengthen efforts by small island states against "the existential threat" that global warming poses. As any good reality TV star would, Trump teased the big reveal, tweeting Saturday that he would "make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!"

On Tuesday, Trump met a key voice advocating for withdrawal, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt. Contradictory signals Since taking office on January 20, however, Trump has sent contradictory signals on the Paris deal - reflecting the different currents within his administration, on climate change but also on the wider issue of the United States' role in the world and their relation to multilateralism.

Even if Trump withdraws, Guterres said, "it's very important for U.S. society as a whole - the cities, the states, the companies, the businesses - to remain engaged". Other top Trump advisers, including daughter Ivanka and Gary Cohn, the head of the president's National Economic Council, are said to favor staying in the treaty.

While Trump now favors an exit, he has been known to change his thinking on major decisions and tends to seek counsel from a range of inside and outside advisers, many with differing agendas, until the last minute.

The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said Tuesday that Trump "wants a fair deal for the American people", adding that Trump was spending a "great deal of time" considering the agreement.

"It's absolutely essential that the world implements the Paris agreement and that we fulfill that duty with increased ambition", he said.

News of President Donald Trump's expected decision to pull the United States from a global climate deal has led to a swift and strong reaction from the United Nations. The official, who is involved in preparing the meeting between European Union officials and China's premier, was not authorized to speak publicly and discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because the meeting statement was not finalized.

A White House official says President Donald Trump is expected to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord.

The U.N.'s main Twitter page quotes Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as saying: "Climate change is undeniable. Climate solutions provide opportunities that are unmatchable".

The move, if confirmed, comes despite the urging of European leaders at the G-7 summit last week in meetings with Trump not to abandon the accord. Most of the senators who signed are from states that depend on the continued burning of coal, oil and gas.

"Even if some national governments backtrack in commitments, the combined impacts of sub-national authorities, businesses and civil society will create an unstoppable momentum", Guterres said at a climate change meeting at the United Nations headquarters in NY in March.
