The Post Courier reports the Defence Minister, Dr Fabian Pok, saying the government views the ongoing contributions of the PNGDF to the UN with a sense of responsibility and pride.

The PNGDF's commander, Brigadier Francis Agwi says it is a reflection on the strategic-level work being successfully undertaken by the force.
