New Zealand PM to meet President

2013 Nov 12

The Sri Lankan President has agreed to meet with John Key when he visits the country later this week.



Our Foreign Minister will travel to the north of the country to hear for himself how the Tamil people were treated when the almost 30 year war ended in 2009.



The Prime Minister says his meeting the President will tackle the issues.



"I'll certainly be raising with him the concerns that New Zealand has, and reflecting hopefully by then on the view that Murray McCully has formed when he travels up to the north."



John Key says there's no mechanism for him to change the fact that the host country becomes the chair of CHOGM for two years. (Newstalk ZB)
