- Story Text:Indonesia expressed disappointment on Friday (June 2) after United State President Donald Trump said he would withdraw from Paris accord, the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change.
Foreign Ministry spokesman, Arrmanatha Nasir said the U.S. decision was inconsistent with the international community's commitment to mitigate impact caused by global warming.
Trump said the Paris accord would undermine the U.S. economy, cost U.S. jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world.
With Trump's action, the United States will walk away from nearly every other nation in the world on one of the pressing global issues of the 21st century. Syria and Nicaragua are the only other non-participants in the accord, signed by 195 nations in Paris in 2015.
