RABAT, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Salaheddine Mezouar, the president of the 22nd Conference of the parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change (COP22), said global climate action will continue despite the decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, local media reported on Saturday.

"Despite this decision, climate action remains undeniable and irreversible. Our collective efforts to fight climate change don't stop, not here, not today, quite the contrary they accelerate," the daily Le Matin cited a statement from Mezouar.

"We will maintain our spirit of collaboration and ambition adopted in the Marrakech Proclamation and we will continue to pursue our collective efforts to fully implement the Paris Agreement," he added.

"Today, we reaffirm, more than ever, our commitment to collective action for our climate and sustainable development, in particular for the most vulnerable. The future of our children and our planet depends on us," he concluded.
