Nicaragua To Sign Paris Deal, Leaving US, Syria Only Countries Opposed

"The Nicaraguan government is preparing to join the Paris climate agreement, making Syria the only country not to be a party to the deal and the United States the only nation determined to pull out of it.

Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega told local media this week that the country is preparing to sign the deal, under which nations determine individual greenhouse gas reduction plans.

'We will soon adhere, we will sign the Paris Agreement,' he said, according to Nicaraguan newspaper El Nuevo Diario."
