Palau Leader Has Faith In US Protection

Remengesau: has faith that the US would do all it can to protect everyone in the region with the same commitment they have for the mainland US

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, August 14, 2017) – The president of Palau Tommy Remengesau has expressed faith in the United States' protection of the region amid North Korea's renewed threats to attack Guam.

Pyongyang said it will have a plan ready by this week to strike 30 to 40 kilometres off Guam which houses US military bases.

According to the Marianas Variety, Mr Remengesau said he had faith that the US would do all it can to protect everyone in the region with the same commitment they have for the mainland US.

Palau is situated about 1300 kilometres from Guam.

The president said he is praying it is just rhetoric and he hopes reasonable minds come together to find a solution to ensure peace in the region.
