NOUMÉA, New Caledonia (September 26, 2000 – Oceania Flash/SPC)---Newly-appointed French State Secretary for Overseas Territories, Christian Paul, is to pay his first visit to the French Pacific territory of New Caledonia next month, the daily newspaper Les Nouvelles Calédoniennes reported.

The minister's arrival was confirmed by New Caledonia's Northern Province President Paul Néaoutyne after he met Paul in Paris last week.

"The minister will come to New Caledonia on October 23, including to make first contacts with local politicians," Néaoutyne said, adding he was "satisfied" with his first interview with the minister.

"We mostly talked about the political situation in New Caledonia. I have reiterated our determination, at FLNKS (pro-independence party umbrella), to engage ourselves more actively in the Nouméa Accord. I have also asked the new minister to heavily commit himself in order to bring a second breath to the parties who have to work on this together."
