Top US diplomat quits following Trump's decision to leave Paris Agreement

Paramilitary police officers guard the entrance to the U.S. embassy in Beijing

"The world has paid attention to the USA withdrawal from the Paris agreement", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a regular news briefing on Tuesday, but added that personnel changes were the United States' "internal affairs". Rank held a town meeting with embassy employees to explain he had offered his resignation and it had been accepted.

However, there are other investing ramifications from Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord, Reuters warns.

Trump's announcement last week that he wants to pull out of the Paris accord did not come up, according to the governor.

Trump's decision drew heavy criticism within the U.S. and internationally, including in China, which swiftly recommitted itself to the agreement forged with the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll revealed that most Americans also disagreed with Trump's decision to remove the USA from the Paris pact. Trump argued that the Paris agreement favors emerging economies such as China's and India's at the expense of US workers.

A senior US official confirmed the account given in the tweets but added that after Rank announced his intention to retire on Monday in Beijing, he was told by the State Department to leave his post immediately. As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, Malaysia also needs to show its commitment to transitioning to a low-emission, carbon-resilient development pathway with an emphasis on increasing the share of renewable energy and reducing that of coal in its energy mix.

Brown said California was willing to join the construction of Belt and Road, and was looking forward to a stronger cooperative relationship with China in trade, investment, clean technology and environmental protection.

Trump said he would "terminate" USA obligations to the Green Climate Fund, a main arm of UN climate funds, saying Washington had already paid one billion dollars and that "many other nations haven't spent anything, and many of them will never pay one dime".

An anonymous senior United States official confirmed this account to Reuters.

"It's backward looking and it's going to hurt the US", he said.

In an earlier speech, Brown criticized those still "resisting reality".
