ALOR SETAR - Malaysia is confident that the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change will not fail despite the United States (US) having announced its withdrawal from the treaty.

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said a total of 194 countries had expressed their high determination that the agreement would be maintained to tackle the issue of global warming.

"A lot of big countries like China as well as the European Union can take over the role of the United States in leading the fight against global warming.

"While we are disappointed with the United States which at one point presented themselves as if they are the champion in defending environmental issues, we are confident that the agreement will not be affected (even) without them," he told reporters when visiting the Sungai Kedah/Anak Bukit Flood Mitigation Project site here Sunday.
