Quotes

"Many in Congress continue to question Vietnam's record on human rights, but the same concerns in the legislative body did not prevent the previous administration from lifting an embargo on Indonesia. If seen as a valuable partner in countering the rise of piracy, arms trafficking or a strategic rival, exceptions will almost always be made."
US President Barack Obama's response was to describe the situation as a threat of "genocide" and say : "Earlier this week, one Iraqi cried that there is no one coming to help. Well, today America is coming to help."
"As the vast majority of New Zealand's trade by value is transferred by sea, maritime security is integral to New Zealand. Our four-month deployment reinforces the New Zealand government's commitment to global maritimemaritime security" Millar said
"Our four-month deployment reinforces the NZ Government's commitment to global maritimemaritime security."
