The Marshall Islands was renewing its appeal for two billion U.S. dollars in compensation from the United States government for damage caused by nuclear tests, the Pacnews reported on Friday.

The request came just days after France announced it would consider compensating those who developed medical conditions as a result of its nuclear tests in the Pacific and North Africa over three decades.

The United States conducted 67 atomic weapon tests on the atolls of Bikini and Enewetak in the Marshall Islands between 1946and 1958. It has already paid out more than 500 million U.S. dollars in compensation.

Earlier this month, the Marshall Islands President Litokwa Tomeing said that no one had received compensation for three years because U.S. funding for the claims tribunal ran out.
