EU chief: EU, China believes Trump climate decision 'a big mistake'

"The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example Of Washington entering into an agreement which disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries", Trump said on Thursday.

Cities around the world lit major landmarks up bright green after US President Donald Trump announced the United States will withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate accord.

While Trump said the United States would be willing to rejoin the accord if it could obtain more favorable terms, the three European leaders said the agreement cannot be renegotiated, "since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economics".

The U.S. decision to pull out of the global climate accord has drawn harsh criticism from leaders all around the world.

From 2009 to 2013 he competed in MotoGP with the Ducati team, following which he raced with the Aspar Racing Team for two years. Members of his family reportedly flew out from the United States to be with Hayden while he was being treated at the hospital.

"Let us unite our efforts together, learning from the errors of the past, addressing the needs of the present and face the challenges of the future, within the carrying capacity of nature, without compromising the capacity of the next generations to survive", Galicha said.

"We hope that the other countries will not follow Trump saying, 'If USA did it, I will also do it.' If they follow [him], this will cause the Paris deal to collapse", Mehmet Emin Birpinar, Turkey's chief negotiator for climate change talks, told Anadolu Agency on Friday.

Merkel added that Germany would stick to its global climate responsibilities - especially where climate finance for developing and poorer countries affected by climate change is concerned.

Among environment groups, Climate Action Network, said the withdrawal "signals that the Trump Administration is in total discord with both reality and the rest of the world".

In a news conference in the Rose Garden at the White House, Mr Trump said he was fulfilling his "solemn duty to protect America and its citizens".

"Committing to climate action means helping countries like Iraq and Somalia on the front line of extremism and terrorism".

While the announcement was welcomed by his supporters, it brought widespread criticism from world figures, including former U.S. President Barack Obama and Belgium Prime minister Charles Michel who called Trump's decision "a brutal act". Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted that it was "in honor of DC's continued commitment" to the Paris Agreement. Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, a Democrat, was not thrilled with his city's reference in Trump's remarks.

China is the world's biggest polluter, but now its state-owned tabloid is calling the USA withdrawal "reckless" and said America's "selfishness and irresponsibility" would hurt its global standing. "I'm more concerned about the environment than global warming".
