Syria not invited to Paris climate talks despite joining

The United States mocked Syria's arrival in the Paris Agreement on climate change Tuesday, side-stepping the charge that it has isolated itself by being the world's sole hold-out.

Syria was the last United Nations member state not to have signed the accord after Nicaragua did so last month.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced in June his intention to withdraw from the Paris pact, calling it a "bad deal" and saying it "fails to live up to our environmental ideals".

Additionally, scientist have also unearthed that the current emission levels were not low enough (under two degrees) to ensure that the sea levels do not rise as a result of global warming, which makes that 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 target - set by top polluters hailing from United States, European Union, China and India - an ambitious goal.

It will then take one year to fully withdraw, meaning the earliest the United States could quit is the day after the 2020 USA presidential election.

"I would like to affirm the Syrian Arab Republic's commitment to the Paris climate change accord", Wadah Katmawi, deputy environment minister, said on the second day of climate talks in Bonn, Germany.

"Nations that are entering the phase of post-war recovery - as my nation has seen a war that was oppressive upon it - should be given the priority in reconstruction and reorganizing the environment and climate", he said.

Syrian government sources told AFP today that Assad had already promulgated a bill ratifying the agreement adopted by parliament last month.

The UN is hosting the COP23 climate change conference this week in Bonn, Germany.

Despite Trump's statements that his decision would invigorate the American economy, the U.S.is still in the process of leaving the accord signed by Barack Obama. Other countries in the deal said that isn't possible.

The same day, Macron said "wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again" and called on USA -based scientists to come to France to work on climate-related issues, in an unprecedented English-language speech from the French presidential palace.
