PNG PM says to release formal APEC statement at later date

PORT MORESBY - Papua New Guinea will release a formal closing statement for the regional APEC forum in coming days, Prime Minister Peter O Neill said on Sunday, as the 21-member body was unable to agree on a leaders statement for the first time in its history. In his closing comments to the forum, O Neill also said the group was trying to ensure free and open trade by 2020. Conflicting visions for the region has made it difficult to draft a summit communique, PNG Foreign Minister Rimbink Pato told Reuters earlier, as the United States and China revealed competing ambitions for the region.
