Macron did not name Trump while speaking at the first meeting of the International Solar Alliance in New Delhi.

But while hailing the “solar mamas,” a group of women trained as solar engineers, he said the women had continued their mission to promote solar energy even after “some countries decided just to leave the floor and leave the Paris agreement.”

Trump announced last June that the U.S. was withdrawing from the Paris accord, which aims to slow the rise in global temperature by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

At a separate weekend event in India, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also regretted Trump’s decision.

“It is shameful that the U.S. is the only country in the world that is not in the Paris Agreement,” Clinton said Saturday in Mumbai, India’s financial capital, while speaking at a conference organized by the India Today media group.

Heads and ministers of dozens of countries participated in Sunday’s solar meeting, co-hosted by India and France.
