  1. Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has announced the creation of an ambassador for counter-terrorism.

    "The Canberra-based Ambassador for Counter-Terrorism, to be appointed shortly, will provide a focal point for promoting, intensifying and coordinating our efforts to defeat this scourge, including through international advocacy and representation," Mr Downer said.

    "Fiji and the other Pacific Island countries are vulnerable to terrorist attacks and exploitation by terrorist networks," he said.

    Fiji and Australia today signed an agreement on countering terrorism.

    Mr Downer and his Fijian counterpart, Kaliopate Tavola, met in Adelaide to sign an understanding on dealing with terrorism.

    Mr Downer says Fiji and other Pacific island countries are vulnerable to terrorist attacks and exploitation by terrorist networks.

    He says the new agreement will complement the aid already being given to the region through the Pacific Islands Forum.

    Mr Downer also said Singapore and Australia are to host a regional workshop in mid-year on dealing with terrorist attacks involving chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.
