Nicaragua joins Paris Accord, leaving Trump alone with Syria

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Nicaragua will reportedly join the Paris climate accord, leaving the U.S. and Syria as the only two nations left refusing to support the landmark deal to fight global warming.

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega told state media that his government planned to sign the agreement “soon,” according to a report from the Managua-based television station 100 Por Ciento Noticias. A call seeking comment to the Nicaraguan embassy in Washington wasn’t immediately returned Wednesday.
