But senior White House adviser Steve Bannon and Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt have called to withdraw, as Trump had promised during the presidential campaign.

The United States is the world´s number two carbon polluter, after China.

The 11-day Bonn meeting will focus on drafting a guide for member countries on how to execute the pact and curb fossil fuel emissions.

Paula Caballero of the World Resources Institute think-tank said, "There's no question that if the USA withdraws it is going to create difficulties.in the negotiations".

An official familiar with the issue told Politico news late Monday that the meeting has been postponed. "He told him (Trump) that he will protect what was made in Paris".

Trump and Macron agreed during the phone call to meet during a May 25 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders meeting in Brussels, the White House said.

Though it isn't an official topic, global concerns over the uncertainty that the new USA government would probably exit Paris Agreement are casting shadow over the conference.

Salaheddine Mezoua of Morocco, who presided over the last high-level climate negotiations in 2016, said he trusted that "the good sense and pragmatic spirit President Trump and his team" would prevail. The May meeting of the United Nations climate talks body is normally a pretty low-key affair but this is the first gathering of delegates since Donald Trump was inaugurated.

"But it won't happen without clear, stable policy signals from countries worldwide - in particular, the U.S. government whose waffling on the Paris Climate Agreement is hugely troubling", she said in a statement.
