Representatives from the Pacific Islands Forum have ended another round of talks with Japan, France and the United Kingdom, over the transport of radioactive materials in the Pacific region.

The meeting in Nadi was the fifth in an on-going series, which focuses on the shipments of radioactive and high-level wastes between Japan and Europe.

At their summit last August, Pacific Islands Forum Leaders reiterated their continuing concerns over the shipment of radioactive materials through the region.
