TOKYO — Peter Christian, president of the Federated States of Micronesia, held talks in Tokyo with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, with Abe announcing grant aid of Y350 million ($3.08 million) for the development of infrastructure in the islands.
Abe said the financial package “shows anew Japan’s commitment to supporting Micronesia’s development.”
The two leaders’ talks focused on a number of key areas, they said, including measures that will help to lay the foundations for a successful eighth Pacific Islands Leaders’ Meeting, scheduled to be held in Fukushima Prefecture in May 2018 . . .
