US President Donald Trump on Thursday shook the world by withdrawing his country’s signature to the Paris Climate Accord signed by Barack Obama in 2015.
World leaders, especially in Europe, are condemning Trump’s decision but Russian President, Vladimir Putin, is towing a different line, telling the world, “Don’t worry, be happy”.
He said the Paris climate deal is good document but that Russia has not ratified it’s signature because it was waiting for rules on some issues.
Putin said he would not judge Trump. In his view though, the US could have stayed in the accord.
