Tonga has re-affirmed its commitment to tackling acts of international terrorism during an address to the United Nation's General Assembly.

Tonga's Prime Minister, Prince Ulukalala Lavaka Ata, said his country had signed up to all parts of the UN Conventions on Terrorism.

But he said concrete steps would continue to be needed for small countries such as Tonga to fully and meaningfully implement these obligations.
