President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the recent agreement by world leaders to cut emissions of greenhouse gases in a wide-ranging meeting in Peru on Saturday.
Trump is slated to attend a joint session of the U.S. and Russian national academies of sciences on Monday.
The two leaders will also discuss climate change at a joint press conference at 2 p.m.
EDT (1900 GMT) in Lima, Peru.
The United States and Russia have been at odds over the climate change agreement reached in Paris in December and are set to meet again this week in Russia.
Ahead of their meetings, Trump and Putin signed an agreement to “make the United States fully committed to its international commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide emissions,” according to a White House statement.
Trump also met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin on Thursday and reiterated his goal of a “global clean energy economy” by 2023.
The White House did not provide details on how the two leaders’ meeting would proceed, but it was expected to include a discussion of Trump’s upcoming meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
