US Assistant Secretary for Political-Military Affairs Andrew J Shapiro is in Wellington today for talks with senior officials on peacekeeping, joint military exercises, and defence trade.

Shapiro arrived in New Zealand yesterday, and travels on to Perth, where he will accompany Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defence Secretary Leon Panetta in talks, and then on to Beijing.

A former lawyer and aide to Clinton, he has held the post since 2009.
