Tensions have overflowed at the APEC summit in Papua New Guinea, after a group of Chinese officials tried to force their way into a Minister’s office.
Four Chinese officials barged into the office of Papua New Guinea’s Foreign Minister Rimbink Pato on Saturday afternoon after being denied a meeting.
The ABC understands the Chinese Senior Officials Meeting negotiators wanted to meet with the Minister to discuss the wording of the APEC final communique.
When they were repeatedly denied a meeting they pushed their way into Mr Pato’s office, calling out to the Minister for two minutes of his time.
Security was called to the office and the officials had to be forced from the room.
The officials eventually left of their own accord.
