North Korea blasts Trump as 'silly,' 'ignorant' over Paris Accord withdrawal

North Korea is a party to the Paris Accord.

— -- Short-sighted, silly, selfish, and dangerous.

Those are the words of North Korea.

The regime in Pyongyang issued a scorching statement through its official news agency KCNA on Tuesday, blasting Trump's decision that, it said, comes "at the cost of the entire planet."

"The selfish act of the U.S. does not only have grave consequences for the international efforts to protect the environment, but poses great danger to other areas as well," said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The statement goes on to criticize Trump's "America first" foreign policy, and calls the withdrawal, "the height of egoism and moral vacuum seeking only their own well-being ... a short-sighted and silly decision ignorant of the fact that the protection of the global environment is in their own interests."

"Global warming is one of the gravest challenges the humankind is facing today," it said.
