China Vows to Adhere to Paris Climate Deal


China will "steadfastly" implement the Paris climate pact, Premier Li Keqiang said Thursday, urging others to do likewise, as US President Donald Trump was due to announce whether he will keep Washington in the deal.

"China will continue to implement promises made in the Paris Agreement, to move towards the 2030 goal step by step steadfastly," Li said in a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. "But of course, we also hope to do this in cooperation with others."
