Asia-Pacific leaders have said they will pursue free trade deals despite Donald Trump's US election victory.

During the campaign, Trump called for greater protection for US jobs and said he would tear up the Trans-Pacific Partnership - the biggest multinational trade deal in years.

But after a 2 day summit in Peru, leaders defended the benefits of open markets. China also claimed support for a wider 21-nation trade deal it backs.
