WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Washington would adhere to its obligations, because of their international nature, Rhodes told reporters.
"We will, of course, fully continue to implement our commitments under the Iran deal and under the Paris agreement," Rhodes said, as quoted by the White House.
Rhodes reminded that both agreements were international.
"And so when we speak about the Iran deal, it's not just an agreement between the United States and Iran, it's an agreement between the United States, our European allies, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China, as well. And it's in a U.N. Security Council resolution. So you are correct that those nations will all have an interest in discussing with us the state of the implementation of the Iran deal," he said.
The Paris climate agreement aims to limit global average temperatures to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. It also aims to create more financing to curb greenhouse gas emissions and support more climate-resilient development.
