MARRAKESH, Morocco  - Almost 200 nations reaffirmed backing on Thursday for a 2015 global deal to fight climate change at talks overshadowed by worries that US President elect Donald Trump will pull out of the agreement.

"We call for the highest political commitment to combat climate change, as a matter of urgent priority," according to a Marrakesh Proclamation read out at a meeting of ministers in the Moroccan city.

"Our climate is warming at an alarming and unprecedented rate and we have an urgent duty to respond," it said.
