UN Chief, Guterres declares climate deal essential for countries

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says it is absolutely essential that the world unite to combat the threat from climate change.

He made this known while reacting to US President, Donald Trump’s refusal to join other leaders of the G7 group of rich nations in reaffirming support for the accord.

Mr Guterres said that if any country doubted the need for the 2015 Paris climate accord, then other countries must stay the course.

President Trump has previously dismissed global warming as a hoax created by China and has threatened to pull out of the Paris accord.
