Peters: Pakistan’s military rule regrettable – 05 Nov 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

The governments hypocrisy and disingenuousness in foreign policy knows no bounds.

Foreign Minister Winston Peters has finally broken his silence over Pakistan but he may as well have said nothing. He has said that Musharraf’s action are “highly regrettable”.

Aw shucks, that’s too bad. He also has the cheek to ask that they ensure that human right are protected all the while he is seeking to erode our human rights here in New Zealand through his support of the Electoral Finance Bill.

Contrast his statements over Pakistan with those over Fiji.
