“China and the European Union are aligned on the need for international solutions. Nowhere is that more important than in leading the global clean energy transition and the implementation, the full implementation without nuances, of the Paris Climate Agreement,” Juncker said at a meeting of EU and China business leaders in Brussels.

“There is no reverse gear to the energy transition. There is no backsliding on the Paris Agreement,” he added.
