'Paris agreement should not be renegotiated': Talks with environment leaders underway in Montreal

In this sense, Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters is correct in saying, "There has been no change in the U.S.'s position on the Paris agreement".

Later, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote on Twitter, "Our position on the Paris agreement has not changed".

It turns out the U.S. isn't pulling out of the Paris climate agreement after all.

During a meeting of environmental ministers in Montreal, Eissenstat reportedly suggested that the administration was considering reviewing what negotiations can be done in order for the U.S.to stay in the climate accord, the Wall Street Journal reported in an article titled "Trump Administration Won't Withdraw from Paris Climate Deal".

He said that 'we will start to renegotiate and we'll see if there's a better deal.

Trump drew worldwide criticism when he declared the US would pull out of the Paris Agreement and seek a renegotiation.

Tillerson, the top USA diplomat, said, "We are willing to work with partners in the Paris climate accord, if we can construct a set of terms that we believe is fair and balanced [for] the American people and recognizes our economy and our economic interest". "They have also made clear that they have no intention to renegotiate".

France, which has staunchly defended the Paris accord since Trump announced his decision to withdraw, said it would push forward with implementation no matter what.

"So I think the plan is for Director Cohn to consider other ways in which we can work with partners in the Paris climate a ccord", Tillerson said.

Officials from more than 30 nations that signed onto a 2015 landmark pact to fight climate change gathered in Montreal on Saturday, had their first meeting since the United States last month gave formal notice it would pull out of the Paris agreement. Washington's exit of the Paris agreement could cause others to exit, which would undermine a deal that took years to negotiate.

The decision made good on a Trump campaign promise to "cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of US tax dollars to United Nations global warming programs".

In March, with coal miners standing by, Trump signed an executive order mainly targeting the Clean Power Plan, a signature effort by Obama to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants in keeping with US promises of the Paris Agreement.

The U.S. withdrawal was seen as a policy victory for then-adviser Stephen Bannon and his deep suspicion of worldwide agreements and obligations.

While the White House insists its stance has not changed, deciding not to withdraw from the Paris deal and instead focus on negotiating while remaining a signatory would represent a significant about-turn.

The Paris accord, reached by almost 200 countries, was meant to limit global warming to two degrees or less, mainly through pledges to cut carbon dioxide and other fossil-fuel emissions.
