Winston Peters says we've known for some time a new infection has arrived in the Pacific....and we have to be aware of it. 

China has sent a draft security agreement to 10 Pacific countries, ahead of a meeting Foreign Minister Wang Yi is hosting in Fiji next week. 

Former Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters told Heather du Plessis-Allan this sort of outside offer of assistance gives the island nations options. 

“But if they’re taking that option because we have failed to pool our resources and work together in a way that Kurt Campbell is acknowledging the United States should have, if we have failed to do these things then what happens after that is foreseeable.”
