Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The United States has officially rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement.
The Washington government joined the Paris Climate Agreement 107 days later when Donald Trump announced that they were unilaterally coming out on the grounds that it would be costly.

John Kerry, appointed by US President Joe Biden as the US Special Representative for Climate, said via Twitter, "Today’s the day. We’re officially back in the Paris Agreement - again part of the global climate effort. No country can fight this fight on its own. We look forward to a productive year and a successful #COP26 in Glasgow. #GoodToBeBack,"
Foreign Affairs Minister Antony Blinken said in a statement that the Paris Climate Agreement is a unique framework agreement to prevent climate changes due to global warming and warming.
"Our participation in the Agreement in 2016 will be as important as our rejoin in the Agreement today, as well as what we will do next in the coming weeks, months and years," Blinken said.
Blinken said Biden will also attend the Leaders' Climate Summit, scheduled for April 22nd.
