BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — On May 26-27, the G7 leaders gathered in a southern Italian town of Taormina and discussed a number of issues. The sides did not reach consensus on climate change issues, as the United States was "in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement," according to the G7 communique.
"The facts on this matter are clearly reflected in the G7 Taormina communique on climate, it says that within G7 the six [states] are strongly committed to the swift implementation of the Paris agreement and they reiterate that it is not just good for the climate, but it also represents opportunities for business… The seventh [state] says that it is actually 'reviewing,' which is reflected also in the communique. So, before jumping into 'plan B' let's stick to 'plan A' and let's see what this revision will point out to," Schinas told reporters while answering a question on whether EU authorities had a contingency plan in case Washington pulled the plug on the Paris deal.
