(Update) Japan Regrets U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Agreement

   Tokyo, Nov. 5 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government expressed regret Tuesday over the United States' notification to the United Nations of its intention to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change.
   The notification by the administration of President Donald Trump is "regrettable as climate change is a global issue to be tackled by the whole international community," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at a press conference.
   "Japan will seek ways to cooperate with the United States and work proactively to address climate change," the top government spokesman said.
   The start of the withdrawal process is "extremely regrettable," Environment Minister Shinjiro Koizumi said separately.
   At the same time, he offered the view that the U.S. move has rather increased the significance of the upcoming U.N. climate conference in Madrid, called COP25.
