Retired career diplomat David Pearce said it’s important that the US remain “engaged with its allies and the rest of the world,” reports the Portland Press Herald. Pearce, who served as ambassador to Greece and Algeria, was addressing the World Affairs Council of Maine in Falmouth recently and speaking for the first time since he retired from the US Foreign Service.

Talking about President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, Pearce said it was “not a great sign, but we should wait to see what happens.” He also said  America would not benefit if the Trump administration withdrew its support for NATO.
