Auckland meeting

Tonga PM meets with NZ Deputy Prime Minister in Auckland

Peters, who had requested the meeting, had offered to the Prime Minister his moral support and wished him an early recovery from the medical treatment he is undergoing at the Mercy Hospital.

The two leaders met Friday and took the opportunity to discuss the need for on-going cooperation between New Zealand and Tongan Governments, to address the drugs problem that the two countries are facing.

Discussions also focussed on Tonga’s new Parliamentary building, which the New Zealand and Australian Governments have committed to.
