KOROR, Palau (January 8, 2002 - Palau Horizon/PINA Nius Online)---The governments of Palau and the United States are preparing to conclude an agreement regarding joint action in search and rescue missions.

The agreement was one of the subjects discussed by officials from both countries during a recent joint committee meeting held at the office of Palau's President Tommy Remengesau, Jr.

The meeting also touched on U.S. assistance with national security, health training, humanitarian assistance programs, U.S. military ship visits, and the review on the Compact of Free Association-funded road project.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers earlier said that the project is way behind schedule due to delays caused by bad weather.
