BREAKING: French President, Macron rejects trade deals with countries outside Paris climate pact

Macron told the UN General Assembly without explicitly mentioning his US counterpart Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the global framework.

 

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday said that trade agreements will be contingent on membership in the Paris climate pact, in a clear bid to pressure the United States.

“We will no longer sign commercial agreements with powers that do not respect the Paris accord,” Macron told the UN General Assembly without explicitly mentioning his US counterpart Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the global framework.
