Syria plans to join the 2015 Paris agreement for slowing global warming, isolating the United States as the only country opposed to the pact, delegates said at U.N. climate negotiations in Germany.

Syria and Nicaragua were the only two nations outside the 195-nation pact when it was agreed in 2015. U.S. President Donald Trump announced in June that he intended to quit and Nicaragua has said it will join.
