A group of Australian based Arab Ambassadors has been on a joint visit to New Zealand over the past two days. Today they held a relatively poorly attended - but highly informative - press conference at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Wellington.

Subjects addressed in the press conference included New Zealand's diplomatic efforts in relation to Middle East peace; the Arab peace initiative, the siege of Gaza, the Hamas position on Israel, Lebanon, Syria's relations with Israel, Syrian views on the plight of the Palestinians and nuclear proliferation issues in relation to Iran and Israel.
