Marape to meet NZ counterpart in State Visit

The visit officially kicks off a series of State Visits he intends to conclude by the end of the year.

Marape left PNG shores today and will begin with a brief stop-over in Fiji.

Prime Minister Marape’s meet with his New Zealand counterpart aims to see bilateral discussions on matter of mutual interest.

“My visit to New Zealand is in order and to firstly thank them personally for being a genuine friend of PNG. Recently, the New Zealand Government assisted by evacuating our PNG students from China to New Zealand due to the coronavirus.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern engaged to Clarke Gayford

 News of the couple's engagement emerged after Ms Ardern was seen at a ceremony on Friday wearing a diamond ring on the middle finger of her left hand.

A hawk-eyed journalism intern spied the new addition and asked the prime minister's office about it.

Her spokesman then confirmed that the pair got engaged over Easter.

Last year, Ms Ardern gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter named Neve Te Aroha.

Earlier this January, Ms Ardern was asked by the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire if she would ever propose to Mr Gayford.
