US-Pacific Island Summit 12 Nations.Susan Walsh AP

The White House held a U.S.-Pacific Island Summit last week with 14 island nations represented; other nations sent observers. The Marshall Islands, being wooed by China, was noncommital at first, but signed the final declaration. President Biden pledged $810 million in additional aid, and used the occasion to grant diplomatic recognition to the Cook Islands and Niue. (Susan Walsh/AP)
