China’s Push for Agreement With Pacific Island Nations Stalls

SUVA, Fiji – A proposal for deeper security and trade ties between China and the Pacific island nations stalled at a summit involving senior officials from those countries after at least one leader said it could give Beijing too much clout in the region.

China had planned to press for the regional deal at the summit, which would have expanded law enforcement and cybersecurity cooperation while exploring the possibility of creating a free trade area between China and the Pacific island nations. But days before the meeting, a letter from the President of the Federated States of Micronesia, who has close ties with Washington, was released, warning Pacific nations to be cautious about the deal.
