US to unveil Paris climate pact commitments in April

US climate envoy John Kerry confirmed Wednesday the United States would lay out new financing commitments for the Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions ahead of an April 22 summit, the pact's fifth anniversary.

Kerry announced the pledge after talks with French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, part of a European tour to signal a fresh commitment to fighting climate change after ex-president Donald Trump had pulled out of the Paris accord.

"We will announce our NDC at the April 22 summit or somewhere in the days before it," Kerry said, referring to the nationally determined contributions required by signatories.
