Former US State Secretary Hillary Clinton on Friday criticized the decision of President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris Agreement of 2015 aimed at fighting the global climate change, calling the move "a historic mistake." reports citing Sputnik news.

Trump announced the decision to quit the agreement on Thursday. The president expressed the readiness to renegotiate the deal under terms that would be "fair to the United States," but EU leaders subsequently rejected the proposal in a joint communique.

During the election campaign, Trump has repeatedly voiced intention to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. The participation in the international agreement was discussed during the G7 summit held in Italy on May 26-27, during which the United States failed to reach the consensus with other counties.
The Paris Agreement, created within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and championed by former US President Barack Obama, was ratified by 147 countries out of 197 parties to the convention. The deal aims at keeping the increase in average global temperature at below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
