China and other countries will stick to their pledges in the Paris Agreement to combat climate change after US President Donald Trump decided to pull out of the pact, officials and experts said.

"It is not appropriate to say China should assume a sole leadership role in the international community with the US withdrawal," Guo Jiaofeng, a senior environmental analyst at the Development Research Center of the State Council, a government think tank, told China Daily during the eighth Clean Energy Ministerial meeting on Tuesday.

"It does provide more opportunities for China to enhance cooperation with other parties, to together push the pact forward," he said, referring to bodies such as the European Union or nations like India.
