Police attack Papua New Guinea parliament in APEC pay dispute

Xi warns of dangers of conflict while Pence lets fly

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in Papua New Guinea were unable to agree on a final communique.

Mr Xi insisted that there was no "hidden agenda" to the Belt and Road scheme.

Zhang Shaogang, director-general of China's global department at the Ministry of Commerce, said that Papua New Guinea, which hosted the summit, will issue a 'chairman's statement, ' cited by Reuters.

Concerns are growing about the ongoing debate on trade as well as relations between Washington and Beijing, and the upcoming Group of 20 summit in Argentina will be an "opportune time" for the leaders to talk to resolve their issues, he said.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) is exploring a new round of reform, Xi noted, saying such reform should be created to uphold the core values and underlying principles of the multilateral trading system.

The multilateral trade order, that APEC was established in 1989 to protect, is crumbling as Chinese assertiveness in the Pacific and U.S. tariffs strain relations in the region and divide loyalties.

A Leaders' Declaration has been issued after every annual APEC leaders' meeting since the first in 1993, the group's website shows.

Such a policy, believed to be aimed at hurting US President Donald Trump's political base, is misguided, Long said.

Trump has not traveled to the South Pacific island nation, sending Pence instead. Only President Xi Jinping of China was on hand to represent his country.

The impoverished island hosted leaders from both sides of the Pacific last week despite the high costs involved.

In an example of one of these new opportunities, on Sunday New Zealand announced a joint Papua New Guinea electrification project with Australia, the US, Japan and Papua New Guinea.

"There are still some points of disagreement between the two major players here", Mr Morrison said.

On this showing at least, the forum's 21 members, including Hong Kong and Taiwan, must decide whether they want to play Cold War 2.

A USA official familiar with the talks said China balked at some language related to trade.

One mentioned opposing "unfair trade practices" and reforming the WTO, while another concerned sustainable development.

"They're now violating the sovereignty of every other nation's ability to fly, sail, and operate in accordance with worldwide law", Davidson said.

Kim Porter, Diddy's former girlfriend and mother to 3 children, dies
A source told TMZ that the model had been suffering flulike symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks. Diddy and Porter, a former model, were a couple on-and-off from 1994 until they split for good in 2007.

"China was angered that the reference to WTO blamed a country for unfair trade practices".

The Prime Minister has played down deep divisions between the United States and China, after a weekend of rancour between the superpowers at the APEC Summit in Port Moresby.

"They begin with trade practices, with tariffs and quotas, forced technology transfers, the theft of intellectual property".

While not referring directly to Chinese claims over various disputed waters in the region, Pence said the United States would work to help protect maritime rights.

Pence also took direct aim at Xi's signature Belt and Road initiative, saying in his speech countries should not accept debt that compromised their sovereignty.

The Belt and Road plan was first proposed in 2013 to expand land and sea links between Asia, Africa and Europe, with billions of dollars in infrastructure investment from China.

About 40 per cent of PNG's population live on less than US$1.25 a day, while four-fifths of the population reportedly do not live in urban areas.

For the moment, that day still looks a ways off. Papua New Guinea, an economy smaller than all 50 USA states that hosted the APEC summit, signed deals in excess of $1 billion with both China and a US-led bloc. China has recently turned its attention to the region with a raft of bilateral financing agreements to often distressed economies. He said that other police were "dealing with it".
