My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State and BEIS Ministers regularly meet with their international counterparts to discuss a range of issues including climate change. In discussions with US counterparts, the Secretary of State stressed that the UK would prefer the US to remain in the Paris Agreement. We work closely on a wide range of climate and energy issues, including renewables, innovation, CCUS and nuclear, and we will continue to do so.
