The US did not join the climate section of the communiqué according to the official dispatch of the summit on which all countries sign, mentioned NDTV report.

The document stated while the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and the presidents of the European Council and of the European Commission are propounding their commitment to the Paris agreement, the US “is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics.”

The document stated while the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and the presidents of the European Council and of the European Commission are propounding their commitment to the Paris agreement, the US “is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics.”

Here it is to be noted that during his Presidential Campaigning Trump had vowed that he would “rip” the Paris Climate Agreement. It seems like the president is all set to fulfill his that promise.

However, if that happens there will be serious international consequences as this will raise a question on the commitment of the world’s super power towards curbing environmental problems.
