Syria signs Paris climate agreement

"As the president previously stated, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms they are more favourable for our country", the statement read.

"It is our understanding that the government of Syria announced today their intent to join the Paris Agreement", said Nick Nuttall, the spokesman for the United Nations climate body.
