The Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea, Peter O’Neil has expressed deep sympathy and extended condolences to the families of people who have lost their lives in Vanuatu as a result of Tropical Cyclone Pam.

“I extend condolences on behalf of the Government and our nation to the people of Vanuatu,” PM O’Neill said.

“People in Papua New Guinean are praying for those who have lost their lives in the cyclone overnight.

“While the full extent of the loss of life, injuries and damage is not clear at this point, we understand the cyclone has caused extensive destruction in Port Vila and several Vanuatu provinces.

“I hope people still at risk from Cyclone Pam are able to take shelter and stay safe.”

He said it is unclear if any Papua New Guineans were among the people killed or injured in the cyclone and is awaiting an update from the Department of Foreign Affairs.

PM O’Neill said the current wet season has been particularly destructive for many communities in the Pacific.
