Outgoing Acting US Ambassador to NZ Dr Dave Keegan was interviewed by NZTV1’s Mark Sainsbury on Sunday. He had this to say about Australian, NZ, the US and the Fiji “situation.”
Keegan: The role of the US in the Pacific I think is longstanding, you know out of Hawaii which is our Pacific state, out of American territories, Guam, American Samoa, and others, but we’re also not going to step in and try to recreate the kind of expertise that Australia and New Zealand bring to the table. You have a degree of knowledge and a degree of understanding of how to make things work there that we want to take advantage of and be the beneficiary of, and figure out how we can add value.
