    Security News: Peters Talks Tough On Terrorism

    New Zealand welcomes the consensus on extending the mandate of the Counter Terrorism Task Force (CTTF) for a further two years. It is clear that the threat posed by terrorists to security, stability and prosperity in the APEC region has not abated. Given the number of counter-terrorism initiatives currently under consideration, it is equally clear that the CTTF continues to have a solid agenda in front of it. See...
