Renewed pleas for Trump to change climate change stance

Mr Trump, who is set to take office on Friday, dismissed climate change as a hoax during his election campaign and vowed to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement.

The foreign secretary of the Federated States of Micronesia, which is the current chair of the Pacific Islands Forum, reiterated his country's hopes that Mr Trump changes his view on climate change.
