The Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific issues the following statement together with the Diplomatic Missions of the European Union Member States in the Pacific.
We believe a strong Pacific Islands Forum, as the premier political regional organisation for the Pacific, is fundamental for this region.
We note the announced initiation by five Micronesian states to withdraw from the Pacific Islands Forum and we hope that the PIF Member States will be able to overcome the current divergence of views.
We remain committed to strengthening the European Union – Pacific region-to-region dialogue and to supporting all efforts to maintain a united, inclusive and balanced Pacific Islands Forum.
