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.‬

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.‬
