Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has confirmed following a discussion with the Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull.
They discussed issues relating to the Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of the Manus Regional Processing Centre and the action that is required to comply with that decision.
O’Neill said in a statement that from this discussion, they have agreed that a delegation of officials from the Australian Government will visit Port Moresby next week to meet with our officials.
“Australia understands the court decision and the meeting next week will consider options and processes required to move forward in an urgent manner as required by the Supreme Court ruling.
"Further details will be released following the meeting of officials next week,” O’Neill said.
Meantime, internal gates at the Manus Island detention centre have been opened and the refugees and asylum seekers inside are now allowed to move around more freely, detainees say.
