New Zealand: Pacific voices will be present in ATT meetings

The Pacific Small Arms Action Group (PSAAG) held their first workshop in Wellington (New Zealand) on 29-30 April. Members from Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea began developing a 2-year strategy on how they can best support their governments to reduce armed violence. The Group also met members of the New Zealand Parliament and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A key focus of PSAAG’s strategy will be to ensure that Pacific voices are well represented at key international fora in the lead up to the ATT negotiations in 2012.
