Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying spoke about the country's commitment to enforce relevant policies for climate change and participation in multilateral processes, at a press conference in Beijing, Friday. Chunying's comments come after the U.S.'s withdrawal from the Paris climate change deal.

Chunying said, "As China, we think Paris Agreement explicates the most widely consensus. We think we should treasure and maintain the hard-earned result."

The spokesperson continued, "In the future, China will continuously enforce relevant policies for climate change and actively participate the multilateral process. We inflexibly insist and maintain global process to improving environment," adding, "China would like to enhance the cooperation with relevant sides, push the follow-up talks of Paris Agreement and carry out them. We will push environmental, low carbon and sustainable development around the world."

"We will proceed the practical moves to answer climate change. We would like to work with other sides, including U.S, to enhance the cooperation in climate change and push the low carbon and sustainable development all over the world," finished Chunying.

U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the country from the climate accord is said to have been influenced by a letter signed by 22 Republican US senators who sent a two-page letter last week urging him to hold to his campaign pledge and pull out of the agreement.
