From , 3:04 pm on 1 May 2018

The leaders of Micronesia are now tasked with putting into action a series of resolutions passed during a three day summit last week, including efforts to improve healthcare and reduce high incidences of non-communicable diseases.

The gathering brought together the presidents of Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia and Marshall Islands, the governors of the Northern Marianas and Guam, plus the leaders of each of the Federated States.

Among the issues discussed were resolutions around climate change, migration and their close but complicated relationship with the United States.
