The dive masters are also very experienced, responsible and know the dive sites very well. Angelo at Splash is highly recommended as a dive master especially if you have not dived in stronger currents. It should be noted that Splash runs a rather large, wide diveboat, containing 20+ divers. ''' http

Only the United States, the Marshall Islands, Palau, and Israel voted against the Council's creation, claiming that it would have too little power and that there were insufficient safeguards to prevent human rights-abusing nations from taking control. ** '''Niue''' - Sani Lakatani (1999-2002) * '''Palau''' - Sabino Anastacio (1997-2000) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - ** '''Cook Islands''' - Inatio Akaruru (1989-1999) * '''Palau''' - Sabino Anastacio (1997-2000) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - Roy Yaki (1997-1999) ** '''Cook Islands''' - Inatio Akaruru (1989-1999) * '''Palau''' - Sabino Anastacio (1997-2000) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - ** '''Cook Islands''' - Inatio Akaruru (1989-1999) * '''Palau''' - Andres Uherbelau (1994-1996) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - ** '''Cook Islands''' - Inatio Akaruru (1989-1999) * '''Palau''' - Andres Uherbelau (1994-1996) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - Sir Julius Chan (Julius Chan) (1994-1996) ** '''Cook Islands''' - Inatio Akaruru (1989-1999) * '''Palau''' - Andres Uherbelau (1994-1996) * '''Papua New Guinea''' - Failed United Nations ban Palau President Tommy Remengesau has called for a ban on destructive and unregulated bottom trawling beyond national jurisdictions and Palau has led the effort at the United Nations and in the Pacific to achieve a consensus by countries to take this action at an international level.

Palau

'''Palau''' ( ), Constitution of Palau. (PDF). palauembassy.com. Retrieved on 1 June 2013. is an island country located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is geographically part of the larger island group of Micronesia. The country's population of around 21,000 is spread across 250 islands forming the western chain of the Caroline Islands. The most populous island is Koror. The capital Ngerulmud is located in Melekeok State (Melekeok) on the nearby island of Babeldaob. The islands share maritime boundaries (maritime boundary) with Indonesia, the Philippines, and the Federated States of Micronesia.

The country was originally settled around 3,000 years ago by migrants from the Philippines and sustained a Negrito population until around 900 years ago. The islands were first visited by Europeans in the 18th century, and were made part of the Spanish East Indies in 1885. Following Spain's defeat in the Spanish–American War in 1898, the islands were sold to Imperial Germany in 1899 under the terms of the German–Spanish Treaty (German–Spanish Treaty (1899)), where they were administered as part of German New Guinea. The Imperial Japanese Navy conquered Palau during World War I, and the islands were later made a part of the Japanese-ruled South Pacific Mandate by the League of Nations. During World War II, skirmishes, including the major Battle of Peleliu, were fought between American and Japanese troops as part of the Mariana and Palau Islands campaign. Along with other Pacific Islands, Palau was made a part of the United States-governed Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands in 1947. Having voted against joining the Federated States of Micronesia in 1979, the islands gained full sovereignty in 1994 under a Compact of Free Association with the United States.

Politically, Palau is a presidential (presidential system) republic in free association (associated state) with the United States, which provides defense, funding, and access to social services. Legislative power is concentrated in the bicameral Palau National Congress. Palau's economy (Economy of Palau) is based mainly on tourism, subsistence agriculture and fishing, with a significant portion of gross national product (GNP) derived from foreign aid. The country uses the United States dollar as its currency. The islands' culture mixes Japanese, Micronesian and Melanesian elements. The majority of citizens are of mixed Micronesian, Melanesian, and Austronesian descent, with significant groups descended from Japanese (Japanese people) and Filipino (Filipino people) settlers. The country's two official languages are Palauan (Palauan language) (member of the wider Sunda–Sulawesi language group (Sunda–Sulawesi languages)) and English (English language), with Japanese (Japanese language), Sonsorolese (Sonsorolese language), and Tobian (Tobian language) recognised as regional languages.
