5:38 pm on 12 February 2015

Leaders from Pacific Island countries have been invited to Iwaki City in Japan in May for the PALM 7 - Tokyo's three yearly forum with the island countries.

Pacific leaders have been regularly invited to Japan since 1997 to discuss co-operation and development issues.

The secretary general of the Pacific Islands Forum secretariat, Dame Meg Taylor, says Japan is an important and long-standing post-forum dialogue partner.

She says the Forum will look forward to further building on this foundation at the next PALM meeting.
