How can the crisis on Manus Island be resolved?

Detainees had filled bins with water to drink but according to Ravinder it was all spilt out today by PNG Police and immigration officials

"We see that we have a role to play here, we're very eager to play that role and as I say I'll be having another conversation with the Prime Minister in the Philippines".

Ardern again reiterated New Zealand's desire to resettle 150 of the men now held in Australia's offshore detention centres despite Malcolm Turnbull turning down her offer a week prior.

There are 400 refugees and asylum seekers who have barricaded themselves inside the mothballed detention centre, saying they fear for their safety if they leave.

This has previously been resisted, with official concerns that it would create a small group of "second-class citizens" in New Zealand that don't enjoy free access to Australia.

Mr Turnbull most recently rejected New Zealand's offer last Sunday when Ms Ardern travelled to Sydney for their first face-to-face meeting.

The Prime Minister acknowledges she could be seen as an irritant to the Australians over her persistence on resettling the Manus Island refugees. No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done, ' she said on Sunday.

It is understood about 120 asylum seekers have left the facility since it was closed on October 31.

The camp officially closed on October 31, but the detainees, who were sent to the island as part of Australia's offshore detention program, have refused to relocate to temporary accommodations.

"We made the offer because we saw a great need".

Papua New Guinea authorities started to dismantle makeshift shelters at the centre over the weekend, while the men reportedly began digging more wells.

"There are no interpreters in Manus right now", he said.

Police, who have so far complied with orders from higher authorities not to resort to force to remove the men, used loudspeakers to appeal to the detainees to move on Monday.

Mr Lam said questions still remain over the quality of the new accommodation being offered to the men near the island's main town of Lorengau.
