World A- A A+

US President Joseph Biden signed a decree on his first day in office to return the country to its obligations under the Paris Climate Agreement, Eurasia Diary reports citing Reuters.

During the ceremony at the White House, President Biden said that these were the first of many documents, and that there is no time to wait.

President Biden said that he will begin signing a number of executive orders within a few days. He added that he will begin with signing those related to the crisis caused by the coronavirus, along with the economic and climate crisis.

In 2018, then US President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Agreement, which, in his opinion, was slowing the development of the American economy.
