The Associated Press has learned the Obama administration is in talks with the remote South Pacific island nation of Palau (PA’-lau) to resettle some or all of 17 Chinese Muslims now held at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. . . The officials spoke on condition of anonymity due to the delicacy of the negotiations. They said the U.S. is prepared to give Palau up to $200 million in aid to accept the Uighurs. Palau is an independent nation about 500 miles east of the Philippines that has close ties with the U.S.
