Italy: US stance on Paris climate agreement still 'suspended' - Italy PM Gentiloni

Italy, Taormina
May 27, 2017 at 07:27 GMT +00:00 · Published

Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said that US President Trump and his administration's stance on the 2015 Paris climate agreement remains 'suspended' as the US continue to engage in an 'internal debate' on the matter, during a press conference in Taormina, Friday.

"There's a matter that remains suspended, which is the one concerning the attitude on the Paris climate agreement," stated Gentiloni. "On this, the President of the United States and the US administration are currently going through an internal debate," he continued.

The Italian prime minister also added that the Paris climate agreement is "a piece of our future", and that all G7 leaders "are confident that after this internal reflection, also the United States will take part in it, as they play a fundamental role."

Gentiloni then said that the Group of 7 signed the declaration of Taormina against terrorism and violent extremism, which contains a political message of "solidarity and unity of the major countries of the free world against terrorism in response to the vile Manchester attack on innocent victims."

The Group of 7 summit gathered leaders from the world’s seven strongest economies; US President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe. The EU was also represented, by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk.
