Foreign relations of Kiribati

Kiribati maintains good relations with most countries and has particularly close ties to its Pacific neighbors--Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and the People's Republic of China. Kiribati suspended its relations with France in 1995 over that country's decision to renew nuclear testing in the South Pacific.

Kiribati signed a treaty of friendship with the United States in 1979. The U.S. has no consular or diplomatic facilities in the country. Officers of the American Embassy in Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands, are concurrently accredited to Kiribati and make periodic visits.

Kiribati hosted the Thirty-First Pacific Islands Forum[?] in October 2000. The country became a member of the United Nations in 1999.

Disputes - international: none
