President Donald Trump has said that he will announce his decision whether the United States would pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change on 1 June.
He said he will make the announcement by 3 p.m. (12:30 a.m. IST).
"I will be announcing my decision on Paris Accord on 1 June at 3:00 P.M. The White House Rose Garden. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!," Trump tweeted.

Trump delayed his final decision on the Paris Accord in the G 7 Summit held in Italy, as he wanted more time to decide whether the United States should pull out of the 195-nation agreement.
However, Trump would, reportedly, withdraw from the climate agreement, CNN quoted two U.S. senior officials familiar with the plan.
