Fiji: NZ Hosted Talks Conclude - Peters Says Outcome Constructive

Scoop News Report: A meeting between Fiji's prime minister Laisenia Qarase and the island nation's military commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama has concluded in Wellington – and while the outcome of the meeting remains secret, New Zealand foreign minister, Winston Peters, said it was constructive. Peters mediated the meeting seeking to ease tensions between the two men at a special summit organised by him and Prime Minister Helen Clark in an attempt to avert a coup from being carried out by Fiji's military.

    Politics: Are Key's Former Climate Change Pronouncements Now Inconvenient Truths?

    "I firmly believe in climate change and always have," was new National Party Leader John Key's answer to nine-till-noon interviewer Kathryn Ryan earlier this week when asked whether the climate was being affected by Greenhouse gas emissions. Mr Key was something less of an eco-warrior a year earlier however when speaking in the House about the Climate Change Response Amendment Bill in mid-2005.
