Papua New Guinea's police commissioner says residents in the capital shouldn't be concerned about the thousands of foreign security forces converging on the city.

A massive multi-national security operation is underway in Port Moresby which is hosting the APEC leaders summit this weekend.

About 4,000 military personnel, about half of whom are foreign, will be backed by hundreds of police in maintaining security during and around the summit.

Commissioner Gary Baki, who is head of the join security operation, spoke to Johnny Blades.
