    "...... SOUTH PACIFIC REGION."



    Q. M. Hannett can you see any prospects for long term unity or eventual unity between Papua/New Guinea and Bougainville?



    A. I may sound extremely pessimistic but I feel that there is no possibility of unity with Papua/New Guinea under the present condition but I would like to say that given good will on both sides there may be an opening for possibility of mutual happy coexistence if PNG Government recognise the principles for which the Bougainvillians are fighting for, and I believe this same principles are the ones that will spell peace in PNG as well as for the whole South Pacific regions.
