Dr Sikua sets to address UN today.

PRIME Minister Dr Derek Sikua will be addressing the United Nations General Assembly today.

He is now at the UN’s headquarters in New York.

The country’s high commissioner to the United States, Collin Beck, said Dr Sikua early this week attended a gathering hosted by American President George Bush.

He and his delegation also attended the opening of the 63rd Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
Dr Sikua also held a number of bilateral talks with selected European Union partners, including Turkey and those from the region.

The prime minister, who is accompanied by his wife and senior officials, returns tomorrow via Nadi.
