MEXICO CITY, June 1 (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Thursday said his country was still fully committed to the Paris climate treaty, after U.S. President Donald Trump said the world’s No. 1 economy will pull out of the global pact to tackle climate change.
In a statement shortly after the Mexican president’s tweet, Mexico’s foreign and environmental ministries issued a joint statement, saying climate change is an “incontrovertible” fact that requires cooperation from all nations.
“Actions to put the brakes on climate change are a moral imperative,” the statement said. (Reporting by Gabriel Stargardter)
