The Hill article The Latest on U.N. climate change talks in Paris (all times local):5:40 p.m.
The United Nations will discuss how to tackle climate change and the threat of war, but the talks are already proving politically explosive and could be pushed into a second round by divisions over the U.K. vote to leave the European Union.
In the lead-up to the U-N climate change conference, the United States and Britain are pressing Britain to hold off on a formal withdrawal until a full U.
Ns. report on the consequences of leaving the bloc is published by the end of the year.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday that Britain would need to remain in the EU until after Britain leaves, which could be months away.___The United States is also pushing for a speedy conclusion to the talks.
The U.U.S.-led talks in Bonn are due to resume Wednesday, but it is unclear how quickly the countries will get to agreement on how to move forward with the agreement, which would pave the way for the Paris Agreement to be formally ratified.___Follow AP Washington bureau chief Josh Lederman on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joshledermanAPCopyright © 2018 The Associated Press.
