U.S President, Trump Begins Formal Withdrawal From Paris Agreement

US president, Donald Trump has formally started the process of pulling the us out of the landmark Paris agreement, three years after the deal came into force.

US secretary of state Mike Pompeo who announced the withdrawal, reiterated the administration’s view that the deal entered into by Barack Obama gave an advantage to developing countries, in particular China.

He said the decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement became imperative because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by pledges made under the agreement.
