COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - President Barack Obama hailed a non-binding climate agreement between developed and developing nations he helped broker on Friday as a foundation for fighting global warming in the future.

“We have much further to go,” he said, adding that more trust would have to be built between rich and poor nations to reach a legally-binding pact.
