Special Presidential Envoy Joseph Yun paid a courtesy visit to President David Kabua at the RMI Embassy in Washington, DC Monday this week. Yun heads the US Compact negotiation team.
President Kabua welcomed and thanked Yun for the time to meet in person as they were unable to meet in person earlier due to Covid-19.
The President thanked Yun for his work on the Compact negotiations. President Kabua said he looked forward to progress and working together to achieve an agreement that is beneficial to both sides.
“I look forward to a very nice agreement that will be beneficial for both sides and with a dignified solution,” stated the President, according to a release from the President’s Office.
Yun announced that the third round of negotiations will be held in the Marshall Islands at the end of October or early November.
Yun commended President Kabua on his statement during the 77th United Nations General Assembly stating that it was a very well balanced statement and that the nuclear issue was well timed amidst the Ukraine-Russian war. After the courtesy visit, Special Envoy Yun toured the Embassy and was shown photos of the nuclear legacy that hung on the walls of the Embassy.
