China and France reiterate support for Paris climate deal

 

Chinese leader Xi Jinping on Wednesday hailed a visit by French President Emmanuel Macron as giving a boost to multilateralism and free trade, amid ongoing economic tensions with Washington, reports AP.

The two countries also pledged continued support for the Paris Agreement as the US begins its withdrawal from the landmark climate deal.

Following a welcome ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in central Beijing, Xi said the two leaders had sent "a strong signal to the world about steadfastly upholding multilateralism and free trade, as well as working together to build open economies."
