Norway Prime Minister Caught Playing Pokemon GO

He said it "was a bad deal for the US", repeating comments made when he announced the U.S. withdrawal last June.But he said he had no problem with the accord itself.A United States pull-out will make the USA in effect the only country not to be part of the accord.

In June, Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change and made a decision to renegotiate the deal that was agreed upon by over 190 countries during the previous Obama administration. He also stated that the current agreement "took away a lot of [the country's] asset values".

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has said the country intends to buy additional F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin and P-8 maritime surveillance planes from Boeing, FOX Business reported Wednesday. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business. "But I had a problem with the agreement that they signed".

Trump said the Paris agreement was very unfair to the United States because it imposed penalties and took away many US asset values. Trump pledged on the campaign trail to withdraw from the accord, which former President Barack Obama and the leaders of 194 other countries signed in 2015. "We could conceivably go back in", he said.

Observers were quick to point out that the Paris Agreement allows countries to set their own climate action plans and contains no formal penalties for nations that fail to meet any self imposed targets.

"We are very strong on the environment", the president continued.

According to some estimates, the USA would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg said that the economic relationship between the Norway and the U.S.is being strengthened, the report noted.

The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement deny the US competitive edge.

"So we could conceivably go back in.Mr Trump stressed his administration's commitment to environmental issues, "clean water, clean air", but added "we also want businesses that can compete". "China, by 2030-they don't kick in until 2030", he said as an example. The prime minister also noted her country's investments in the US, which she said supported 470,000 U.S.jobs.
