McCully visiting the Pacific

Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully is in the Pacific this weekend.

He's visiting the Marshall Islands, Kiribati and Tuvalu during his trip.

The Marshall Islands will host the Pacific Islands Forum in 2013 and Mr McCully says the Government is keen to offer support.

He says New Zealand makes a significant investment in the ongoing sustainable economic development of Kiribati and Tuvalu, and he'll be seeing the difference our aid dollars are making first hand.

Mr McCully will also pay his respects at the New Zealand Coastwatchers memorial in Kiribati.

It's 70 years since 17 New Zealand Coastwatchers were executed there during World War II.
