Labor’s thoughts are with the Tongan community following the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano eruption and subsequent tsunami waves.
While the extent of the damage is still unknown, early reports indicate damage to homes and property.
We hope that no one has been harmed and no lives have been lost.
Australia must remain a partner of choice to Pacific nations and assist them in their times of need.
Labor welcomes and supports the Australian Government’s offer of assistance to the people of Tonga.
