Vanuatu wants another meeting with France at the end of the month, to discuss the issue of Matthew and Hunter islands.

This follows a report stating, a French warship has been to these two islands recently, and polished a plague and painted the French flag on the stones of these two islands.

Parliamentary Secretary on the Prime Minister's office, The Member of Parliament (MP), Johnny Koanapo says Vanuatu has not lost faith in the negotiations made over Matthew and Hunter island, despite the move that France has made.

Mr Koanapo is leading Vanuatu's negotiating team to have talks with the French government.
