Polynesia and Nuclear Tests

Posted: 26th July 2021

French President Emmanuel Macron was greeted with flower garlands and

Tahitian dancers on the tarmac as he touched down Saturday night for his
first official trip to French Polynesia. While in the South Pacific
territory, he plans to discuss its strategic role, the legacy of nuclear
tests and the existential risk of rising seas posed by global warming.
Residents in the sprawling archipelago of more than 100 islands located
midway between Mexico and Australia are hoping Macron confirms compensation
for radiation victims following decades of nuclear testing as France
pursued atomic weapons.
