Marshall Islands

On Friday, August 13, 2004, the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands signed a reciprocal maritime Shipboarding Agreement [entered into force November 24, 2004] in support of the Proliferation Security Initiative. Marshall Islands Foreign Minister Gerald Zackios and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Randy Schriver signed the agreement.

The Proliferation Security Initiative announced by President Bush on May 31, 2003 seeks to establish cooperative partnerships worldwide to prevent the flow of weapons of mass destruction, their delivery systems, and related materials to and from states and non-state actors of proliferation concern. -- Excerpt from fact sheet, August 14, 2004
