US Could 'Conceivably' Return to Paris Climate Deal

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the USA could "conceivably go back in" the Paris climate agreement if a fairer deal was reached, though he gave no concrete sign that any such deal was being discussed at this stage.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who calls her country the West's "eyes and ears" on Russia's northern border, said Moscow's interference in the 2016 USA presidential election has put European democracies on alert for future meddling.

Norway's prime minister told President Donald Trump on Wednesday that her country remains committed to the Paris climate agreement, making the business case of the "green economy" to the real estate developer-turned president.

"The discussion you've had in the United States has, of course, lifted this issue in all European countries", Solberg said Wednesday in an interview with The Washington Post.

In response, Solberg noted that Norway is "already number two in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation after the U.S.in terms of per capita defense spending".

"It put great penalties on us".

"It took away a lot of our asset values", he explained. While the Scandinavian country remains a major exporter of oil and gas, the Norwegian government was among the first to sign on to the landmark Paris climate deal, pledging to meet a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030. "But I say this, we are very strong on the environment".

"The EPA and commissioners are very powerful in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air - but we also want businesses that can compete". "The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge. And I believe Norway will get there quite soon", he added.
