Abe may not attend Paris climate meeting out of deference to U.S.


Monday’s Sankei highlighted the disclosure by several GOJ sources that Prime Minister Abe is disinclined to attend a climate change summit to be held in Paris on Dec. 12 out of deference to President Trump, who has denounced the Paris climate accord. As the conference will be hosted by French President Macron, who is highly critical of the U.S. leader’s decision on withdrawing from the landmark pact on global warming, the premier will probably skip the confab so that the President will not appear to be isolated internationally. Foreign Minister Kono is expected to represent Japan on behalf of Abe.
