G20 leaders reaffirm support for climate change action and stand against United States

World powers line up against Donald Trump on climate change, reaffirming their support for efforts to fight global warming.

The final statement of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany underlined that the other countries and the European Union supported the Paris climate agreement rejected by Mr Trump.

They called the deal to reduce greenhouse gases “irreversible” and vowed to implement it quickly and without exception.

The other countries, from European powers such as Germany to emerging ones such as China and energy producers such as Saudi Arabia, merely “took note” of the US position, which was boxed off in a separate paragraph.
