"We won't sign a deal with a country that has exited from the Paris accord", Nathalie Loiseau, who resigned from the post of European affairs minister this week in order to run for the European Parliament, told BFM TV on Thursday, ONAreports.

The statement echoes remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron, who earlier stressed that France would not support comprehensive trade agreements that might negatively impact climate issues.

However, the politicians refused to mention the US directly, despite the fact that it is the only nation that announced its withdrawal from the agreement.
