Australian FM statement on political situation in Samoa

  • Senator the Hon Zed Seselja, Minister for International Development and the Pacific

    The Australian Government acknowledges the declaratory statement by the Samoan Court of Appeal that its ruling of 2 June 2021 does not prevent the convening of Parliament.

    We urge all parties to cooperate, with a view to convening the parliament and enabling the formation of a government.

    This year Australia and Samoa mark 50 years of diplomatic relations, achieving much together and in the region.

    We look forward to continuing our cooperation with Samoa to strengthen our bilateral links and promote a stable, inclusive and prosperous region.
