US could return to climate deal By

Trump said the planned USA withdrawal from the Paris climate deal "wasn't a major topic" during their discussions and repeated his claim that the climate agreement negotiated by the Obama administration and signed by countries around the globe "treated the United States very unfairly".

The Paris agreement was created within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and has been ratified by 170 countries out of the 197 parties to the convention.

In response, Solberg noted that Norway is "already number two in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation after the terms of per capita defense spending". But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair. "It took away a lot of our asset values", President Trump said.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump told Solberg. The Paris agreement's central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping the global temperature rise in this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The agreement entered into force in November 2016.

President Donald Trump and Norway's prime minister bonded over economic ties and military might on Wednesday as the two leaders joined together for talks expected to focus on security issues and jobs. According to some estimates, the U.S. would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025. Trump insisted that his administration feels very strongly about the environment. I suppose it's also technically possible that the F-52 is such a super-secret new fighter that we've never heard of it before now, although I'm not convinced that Norway would be the number-one market for that kind of tech. "Our EPA (environment protection agency) and our EPA commissioners are very, very powerful, in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air, but we also want businesses that can compete", he said.

Trump said he was pulling the US out of the Paris Agreement a year ago, shortly after assuming the presidency. "And I believe Norway will get there quite soon", he added.
