Cook Islands and Ireland commit to strengthen co-operation


The Cook Islands and Ireland have committed to strengthening bilateral and multilateral co-operation through formalisation of diplomatic relations at a signing ceremony in Wellington on Sunday.

The signing of the Joint Communiqué by Cook Islands High Commissioner to New Zealand Elizabeth Wright-Koteka and Ireland’s Ambassador to New Zealand Jane Connolly follows a series of bilateral engagements between the two governments, the most recent between Prime Minister Mark Brown and Ireland’s Foreign Minister Simon Coveney at COP27 in Sharm el Sheikh earlier this month.
