Mr Turnbull had a meeting with US President Donald Trump on Monday morning in Manila and the pair will share dinner together where the US offer to accept 1250 refugees - agreed by former president Barack Obama - is likely to come up.

Speaking at the APEC Summit in Vietnam on Saturday local time, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said the unfolding stand-off between refugees and PNG immigration officials was unacceptable.

In this Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 image supplied by Hass Hassaballa, asylum seekers sit on the ground as they refuse to leave the Manus Island detention center in Papua New Guinea.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has condemned Australia for failing to resolve the refugee crisis now unfolding on Manus Island. No matter what label you put on it there is absolute need and there is harm being done, ' she said on Sunday.

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.

"I see the human face of this and I see the need and the role New Zealand needs to play".

Depending on the severity of Montgomery's injury, the Packers may need to make a roster move at running back. The Packers also have rookie running back Devante Mays, who was inactive against the Bears on Sunday.

"I think it's clear that we don't think what's happening there is acceptable, that's why the offer is there."

A substantial discussion has not yet happened - Ms Ardern will now bring it up when the pair meet in the Phillipines this week.

"Ultimately there are a group of people that do need to be resettled", she said.

"I'll be raising with Prime Minister Turnbull, as I have consistently done, that we have grave concerns over the situation on Manus Island, but also for the refugees on Nauru, and that our hope is to lend a hand as far as we are able in helping resolve the situation", she said. "There are already 120 that have moved already [and] there are other positive indications from other refugees that they will be moving as well", he said.

Police had complied with an order from the capital, Port Moresby, not to use force to move the migrants and take them to camps 30 minutes' drive away, Yapu said.

Papua New Guinea has threatened to forcibly move the men if they remain inside the centre.
