Tonga PM meets with NZ Deputy Prime Minister in Auckland

Tonga’s Prime Minister, Samuela ‘Akilisi Pohiva, met with New Zealand’s Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters 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.

PM Pohiva completed Stage 1 of his medical treatment at the Mercy Hospital on May 8.

The next stage of the treatment is scheduled for Thursday, May 16 2019.
