President Obama and President Xi Jinping of China said Thursday that they would sign the Paris Agreement on climate change on April 22, the first day the United Nations accord will be open for government signatures.

In February, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked an Obama administration regulation to curb greenhouse gas pollution from power plants, the centerpiece of Mr. Obama’s climate change policy and the major way for the administration to meet its targets under the Paris accord.

The two world leaders made the announcement on the sidelines of a nuclear security meeting in Washington.


 

BADMINTON: SAINA TO MEET LI XUERUI IN SEMIFINALS, SINDHU EXITS

Saina Nehwal just about managed to survive an 82-minute test against Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun for a place in the semifinals of the $300,000 India Open before a vociferous bunch of supporters at the Siri Fort Indoor Stadium here on Friday. This was Saina’s sixth victory over the Korean in seven encounters.

Saina, defending champion and second seed, overcame the loss of the first game to win 19-21, 21-14, 21-19 in a match that witnessed long rallies and court-craft from both players until their tiring limbs filled the home-stretch with a series of unforced errors.

She now plays her nemesis, Olympic champion Li Xuerui who overcame her Chinese teammate Wang Shixian 22-20, 12-21, 21-17.

Having lost to Xuerui 10 times in 12 meetings, Saina will start the match as an underdog. A rare victory on Saturday is bound to be a huge psychological boost for Saina in the Olympic year.

However, P.V. Sindhu failed to double India’s joy.

In the day’s last match that lasted 80 minutes, Korea’s Bae Yeon Ju made light of the loss of the first game to win 15-21, 21-15, 21-15.

Bae, the only unseeded player in the last-four stage, will face former World champion Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon, seeded four.

The Korean made the first big move towards victory by jumping to a 13-7 lead in the deciding game after winning five points on the trot.
