Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters and National Foreign Affairs Spokesman Murray McCully today delivered speeches to a New Zealand Institute of International Affairs seminar held at Victoria University.

The speeches - to a seminar entitled " Major Foreign Policy Issues Over The Next Five Years" - were billed as an opportunity for the two major parties to explain the points of difference between their policy perspectives in the international arena.

In the final result however the audience learned that there is actually very little light between the foreign affairs policies of New Zealand's two major Parliamentary parties, and what differences there have been are rapidly getting smaller.

For the texts of the prepared speeches see:
McCully: NZ Institute of International Affairs
Peters: "Foreign Policy: The Next Five Years"
