A summit of leaders from the European Union's African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of states has commenced in Papua New Guinea's capital Port Moresby today.



A meeting of the joint ACP council of ministers and foreign ministers is underway, including representatives from a number of Pacific Islands governments.

The meeting is to feature a briefing on a report by an Eminent Persons Group considering if there are relevant grounds to continue with the ACP as a group.

Vanuatu's government is reportedly preparing to put forward a resolution related to West Papua.
