PACIFIC-DIPLOMACY-SUMMIT-AUSTRALIA-CHINA

Cook Islands Prime Minister Henry Puna (C) talks to the media while Christopher Loeak President of the Marshall Islands (R) and Tuiloma Neroni Slade, Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat listen, during a press conference at the Edgewater Resort in Rarotonga the largest Island in the Cook Islands on August 27, 2012. Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr said regional powers need to get used to China's so-called chequebook diplomacy in the Pacific as it works to shore up support over Taiwan. Carr's comments came on the eve of the Pacific Islands Forum, a grouping of mainly small island states, along with resource-rich Papua New Guinea and the dominant regional powers Australia and New Zealand, both US allies.
