It is with great sadness and disappointment that we learned of the unfortunate recent court decision in Washington DC to lock out PNG. Embassy staff following three months of arrears in rental payments.

The Parliamentary Leader and Member for Sinasina Yongomugl Mr Kerenga Kua said, "The O'Neill Government has spent a fortune during the campaign period telling Papua New Guinea, in a series of glossy advertisements, about how it has put PNG on the world stage. Hosting regional and global events has given us some recognition, but at the cost of so many other high priority areas like health and education.

INTERNATIONAL SHAME! PNG'S US CHANCELLERY ISSUED DEMAND NOTICE - PAY LEASE OR GET EVICTED

Dear, Minister Pato and Secretary Dihm,
Its not an enviable task to be the one delivering unenviable news. Anyway, the Landlord of the Embassy Chancellery, not having received the rental lease payment for the month of March and fearing possible long delays as in the past, and despite assurances, has issued a letter demanding full payment of lease rentals for the month of March and April by the 1st April 2017. The attorney of the Landlord had been copied the letter to its attorney, which essentially is a standing instruction to secure from the courts, an eviction order to effect the eviction of the Embassy from the current chancellery location if said payments are not received in full on or by the date cited in the letter. Attached are Ambassador Mulina's cover letter along with the Letter from the Embassy Landlord. We hope quick appropriate action from headquarters can prevent eviction. Thank you Elias R. Wohengu Minister/Deputy Chief of Mission Embassy of Papua New Guinea

US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has issued a warning that PNG is one part of the Pacific where the US is engaged in a strategic competition with China over resources and leadership.
Ms Clinton was blunt about US strategic intentions when she went before the foreign relations committee last week.
She says China is "wining and dining" politicians from across the Pacific.
"Let's put aside the moral, humanitarian, do-good side of what we believe in and let's just talk straight, real politique," she said.
"We are in a competition with China. Take Papua New Guinea - huge energy find.
"Exxon Mobil is producing it. China is in there every day in every way trying to figure out how it's going to come in behind us, come in under us. They're supporting the dictatorial regim…
