NEW ZEALAND WILL SEND more police officers to Bougainville in response to the autonomous province’s request for further training.
A group of six officers are already mentoring Bougainville's Community Auxiliary Police, but NZ foreign affairs minister Murray McCully says the mission will be renewed in December.
"I think I can say with some certainty at this stage that it will continue. While the current phase comes to an end, the discussions are already under way as to what the new phase might look like," Mr McCully said.
