"…I can tell you, it may disappoint you, but West Papua was not raised by the PNG Prime Minister."

The Prime Ministers of Australia and New Zealand held a bilateral meeting today, the first since Helen Clark's re-election for a third term as NZ PM. Afterwards they held a brief press conference with New Zealand and Australian media.

Among the issues discussed in the Press Conference were:
- West Papua
- Labour Mobility
- RAMSI's mission to the Solomon Islands
- Helen Clark's re-election
- The Pacific Plan and PACER
