United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon called on President-elect Donald Trump to make wise decisions and "really work for humanity," according to CNN Politics

Ban was speaking at the U.N.'s climate change summit in Morocco, among leaders of countries and businesses. The summit's Action Proclamation called for the "highest political commitment" to fighting against climate change.

"I hope the President-elect Trump will really see the reality, will consult with his senior advisers and world leaders and take wise and correct decisions for their future involvement in world affairs. I count on the U.S.' continued engagement and leadership to make this world better for all," Ban said, according to CNN.

The Action Proclamation posted a goal for developed countries to raise $100 billion per year by 2020 to help developing countries with climate change.

Some leaders are worried that Trump could exit the Paris Agreement, which CNN Politics said came about after more than two decades of negotiations.

At the summit, Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom formally ratified that agreement, which includes the U.S. and China. Now 111 countries have signed up.

Secretary of State John Kerry said he was committed to the Paris Agreement, saying that most business people believe in investing in clean energy.

"You can make money and do well at the same time," Kerry said.

Kerry then addressed the presidential election: "I know the election has left some uncertain about the future. I can't speculate about what policies the president-elect will pursue, but I've learned that some issues look a little bit different when you're in office compared to campaign. Climate change shouldn't be a partisan issue in the first place."

Before the summit took place, Ban spoke to Trump. ABC News reported that Ban was optimistic about working with him.

"Mr. Trump will really hear and understand the seriousness and urgency of addressing climate change," Ban said.

Trump has called climate change a "hoax" and promised to cut funding of climate change programs, ABC's report said.
