FILE - In this Nov. 14, 2013, file photo, Brazil's Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira speaks at a news conference on deforestation in the Amazon in Brasilia, Brazil. Despite its critical role in protecting the Amazon rainforest, Brazil will not endorse a global anti-deforestation initiative being announced at the U.N. climate summit, complaining it was left out of the consultation process. A U.N. official disputed that claim. Teixeira said Brazil was "not invited to be engaged in the preparation process" of the declaration. Instead, she said Brazil was given a copy of the text and asked to endorse it without being allowed to suggest any changes. (AP Photo/Eraldo Peres, File)
