PM sure Goff will promote NZ's interests in Australia

11:13 am on 26 October 2010

Prime Minister John Key says he is sure that Labour leader Phil Goff will promote New Zealand's interests when he meets Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

Mr Goff was due to see Ms Gillard on Monday morning in Canberra, while Mr Key is yet to hold his first meeting with her as Australian Prime Minister.

The two leaders will not meet until this weekend when they attend an East Asian Summit in Vietnam.

But Mr Key says he does not feel upset that Mr Goff is meeting Ms Gillard first.
