The Pacific Islands Forum is continuing, with Labour's deputy leader Carmel Sepuloni and National Party foreign spokesperson Gerry Brownlee representing Aotearoa.

University of Canterbury professor Steven Ratuva says the biggest issues facing the forum this year is the "freshening up" the 1985 treaty that makes the Pacific a nuclear-free zone, and climate change.

Ratuva spoke to Corin Dann.
