The State Department defended Tillerson's signing by saying the declaration is not an obligatory document. The agreement facilitates access by scientists of the eight Arctic States to Arctic areas that each State has identified, including entry and exit of persons, equipment, and materials; access to research infrastructure and facilities; and access to research areas.

"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive", Trump tweeted out in November 2012. High-level officials from the world's eigh.

FAIRBANKS, Alaska -The run up to this week's Arctic Council ministerial was dominated by just how U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would navigate his first Arctic Council ministerial as chair.

Arctic nations have approved a document calling for global action to address climate change.

After signing the declaration, Tillerson told the council that his administration was still determining its approach to combatting climate change. She said, however, that the declaration is the latest and best picture of where the Trump administration stands on climate change.

Today US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Fairbanks, Alaska to attend the Arctic Council's tenth ministerial meeting. The U.S. will continue to be an active member of the council, he said. He called for vigilance in protecting the Arctic's "fragile environment" and said the USA would take other nations' interests into account as it formulates environmental policies.

The Arctic Council, formed in 1996 to co-ordinate global efforts for sustainable development in the Arctic territories, does not typically discuss military or security issues.

"It does not make policy or allocate resources, and its decisions must be unanimous", according to AP. But in an interview with The New York Times shortly after the election, Trump said he was still developing a position on the Paris Agreement. "And I think that sounds reasonable to do so".

Trump has labeled climate change a hoax, defying widening global support for the Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

"There are number of issues at play, and I'm reasonably confident that it will come out fine in the end", he said in an interview with Climatewire.

"We urge the Arctic states to continue to work towards more meaningful engagement with the Permanent Participants and to continue to build upon this partnership, evolve and move the bench-mark up", stated Eegeesiak. Those concerns have increased amid new tensions between Russian Federation and the United States.

"The U.S. will remain engaged in the work that the Arctic Council does on climate change throughout".

The Associated Press describes the Arctic Council as "an advisory body that promotes cooperation among member nations and indigenous groups", and a "focus is sustainable development and environmental protection of the Arctic".

Temperatures have been rising faster in the Arctic than elsewhere, revealing the acute threat to the region and leading to fears about a wider knock-on effect around the globe.

Uncertainty over whether the Trump Administration will pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement is clouding talks among the eight Arctic Council nations, which have gathered to discuss the impact of climate change on the vulnerable region this week in Fairbanks, Alaska.
