Marshall Islands lashes Australia, India and China on climate change

The Foreign Minister of the Marshall Islands has joined the Samoan Prime Minister and President of Kiribati in calling on Australia to do more on climate change.

All three are among representatives of more than 100 nations who have attended the United Nations Small Islands Developing States Conference in Samoa.

It's also a precursor to the UN's Climate Change summit later this month - which aims to restart global action on the issue by bringing world leaders together.

Marshall Islands Foreign Minister Tony de Brum says the atoll nations of the Pacific cannot wait any longer for polluting nations, whether they be Australia, India, China or the United States, to take action.

Presenter: Jemima Garrett
