Papua New Guinea will maintain the its initial foreign policy put in place by the nation’s forefathers, Foreign Minister Soroi Eoe said in Parliament.
Eoe was responding to questions raised by Rabaul MP Dr Allan Marat on whether the country’s foreign policy is to remain or change.
“The independent forefathers of this country put in place in our foreign policy “Friends to all, enemies to none” and obviously over the years, there has been various changes, but these changes are done basically for economic reasoning. If you look at it; Selective Engagement, Look North Policy, PNG Connect, but the fundamental policy of this country remains, is what prime minister alluded to last week, and that is to retain and maintain Friends to All and Enemies to None,” he said.
“As we have already raised in previous questions, we need to maintain this policy mainly because of the fact that we need to protect the interest of 8.9 million people of Papua New Guinea.
“That’s the core and important responsibility of this government and basically that is the position that this government had taken and will continue to take until and unless the government decides otherwise.
“But otherwise the foreign policy that has been put in place by our forefathers is the right policy and will continue to retain that policy,” he said.
