US President Donald Trump announced in June that he meant to quit and Nicaragua has said it will join.
On Oct. 23, Nicaragua announced it would join the Paris accord, despite its previous reservations. Not all signatories have ratified the treaty yet.
"Hey @ec_minister - this.is actually what your gov't should be saying about Syria", a tweet from Raitt's account said, linking to a U.S. State Department tweet about chemical-weapons use in Syria.
"I would like to affirm the Syrian Arab Republic's commitment to the Paris climate change accord", deputy Environment Minister Wadah Katmawi told a meeting of nearly 200 nations at the November 6-17 climate talks in Bonn, Germany.
The U.S. has become the only nation in the world to not participate in the Paris Climate Accord, an worldwide agreement to voluntarily lower carbon emissions in an effort to curb rising global temperatures.
"Nations that are entering the phase of post-war recovery - as my nation has seen a war that was oppressive upon it - should be given the priority in reconstruction and reorganizing the environment and climate", he said.
The tweet attracted dozens of complaints from other Twitter users, many of them pointing to the widely suspected use of chemical weapons by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Broadcom considering bid to acquire San Diego's Qualcomm
Shares of Qualcomm jumped 12.7 percent to $61.81, while Broadcom's stock climbed almost 6 percent to $273.63 on Friday afternoon. Since then, though, smartphone sales growth has slowed and Intel has succeeded in placing its modems in some iPhone models.
On the same day that Syria announced its inclusion in the climate agreement, French authorities disclosed that Trump would not be invited to the global summit "Make Our Planet Great Again".
The announcement came from a Syrian delegate during the current U.N. Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, where more than 200 countries were represented. It's "very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States", he said. He was spoke on customary condition of anonymity. "So everyone has joined and the U.S.is now so isolated".
On June 2, former Secretary of State John Kerry of the Obama administration called the USA withdraw from the Paris agreement "one of the most cynical and frankly ignorant and risky, self-destructive steps that I've seen in my entire lifetime in public life".
French organizers are expecting about 2,000 participants, including non-governmental organizations, foundations, banks, startups, local governments, city mayors and others.
The same day, Macron said "wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again" and called on USA -based scientists to come to France to work on climate-related issues, in an unprecedented English-language speech from the French presidential palace.
