Key Navy assets have arrived in Port Moresby ahead of the 2018 APEC meeting to be hosted in Papua New Guinea to provide support and protection.

The Royal Australian Navy Landing Helicopter Dock HMAS Adelaide and Armidale Class Patrol Boats HMA Ships Larrakia and Glenelg will provide support to Papua New Guinea’s security agencies to deliver a safe and secure APEC.

Minister for Defence Christopher Pyne said Australia was providing maritime security support as part of a broader package of security support for APEC.

"The safety and security of the maritime environment surrounding Port Moresby will be critical during Leaders’ Week. Australia is pleased to enhance PNG’s maritime security arrangements for APEC by providing these capabilities," Minister Pyne said.

Assistant Minister for Defence David Fawcett said the ADF stood ready to respond to security tasks if requested by PNG’s Joint Security Task Force. 

"The Joint Security Task Force continues to demonstrate it is well prepared to handle all security arrangements for Leaders’ Week," Senator Fawcett said.
