Xi, Macron unite on climate after US withdraws from Paris pact

AFP, Beijing

Chinese leader Xi Jinping and French President Emmanuel Macron declared yesterday that the Paris climate pact was “irreversible”, showing a united front after Washington formally withdrew from the accord this week.

The joint declaration came at the end of Macron’s second visit to China, which started on Monday in Shanghai and included talks on trade and the Iranian nuclear issue.

The French leader also said he told Xi there was a need for dialogue to resolve months of unrest in Hong Kong—ignoring Beijing’s prior warning that such sensitive topics should not be on the agenda.

But Xi and Macron found common ground on climate change.

Major powers expressed regret and concern after President Donald Trump went ahead with the pullout from the Paris accord despite mounting evidence of the reality and impact of climate change.
