PNG Foreign Affairs Minister Pato addresses UN Assembly

Welcoming the growing attention the world is paying to the Pacific Ocean, PNG's Foreign Affairs Minister has urged the international community to ensure that the Ocean becomes a “zone of cooperation, stability and security, of pristine beauty and prosperity.

Rimbink Pato comments were part of his UN address, delivered during High-Level week of the General Assembly at UN Headquarters in New York.

As host of this year’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, Rimink Pato, said PNG will see many major issues discussed, including several related to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly climate action and gender equality.

Mr. Pato described the Agenda as “a solid pathway that holds much promise for the international community.

Pato adds, APEC itself is, in many ways, a regional example of attempts to achieve what all the members of the United Nations are working so hard to accomplish.
