Forum silent on nuclear contamination

The Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC) has condemned the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat’s (PIFS) continued silence and stand on the threatening nuclear contamination of Pacific eco-systems calling it unacceptable.

PCC General Secretary Fei Tevi says the continued silence from the PIFS undermines the enormous works of the founding members of the Forum in their vision to safeguard and protect the Pacific from nuclear contamination

“As the designers and custodians of the 1985 South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone Treaty (also known as the Treaty of Rarotonga), the PIFS has been mandated to protect the Pacific region from nuclear contamination and must make strong it’s calls on Japan to account for the way it is handling this nuclear catastrophe,” Tevi said in a statement.
