Results for South Pacific Defence Ministers

Wednesday 19 October 2022
Nuku'alofa, Tonga
This week South Pacific Defence Ministers and senior military leaders came together in Tonga for what was a vital meeting. Australia will be there as a partner and a friend, as together we confront common threats to our collective security, including climate change, transnational crime, cyber-attacks and natural disasters. I’ll be working with the Defence Ministers right across the region to boost our defence cooperation, to find more opportunities for our servicemen and women to work alongside each other in a spirit of partnership, so that our forces become more capable and more interoperable. - The Hon Richard Marles MP, Deputy Prime Minister of Australia.
