Watching a PNG quagmire

The mutiny in Papua New Guinea may be over, but Australian still has good reason to monitor the situation closely.

A mutiny reportedly carried out at the behest of former Papua New Guinean Prime Minister Michael Somare ended January 26. The mutiny is the latest incident of a nearly yearlong political crisis in the island nation. Australia has several economic interests in Papua New Guinea, including natural gas and mineral resources. We can expect Canberra to closely monitor the crisis, lest it threaten to undermine Australian interests, and continue its calls for resolution.
