Gun Foreign Minister To Meet Rice Today?

The NZ Herald is reporting that Winston Peters is expected to meet with the US Secretary of State today in Seoul. We have been known to be critical of Winston's performance from time to time, but we do give him credit for developing a good relationship with Secretary Rice.

We also hope that Mr Peters is able to progress the FTA with Korea following the release last week of the study on the likely benefits to both countries. But what is Winston's view on this FTA? Does he support them? Will he vote yes for an FTA with China which includes enhanced opportunities for short term work opportunities for Chinese workers in New Zealand?
