Premier John Horgan says he has ``no plans'' to join talks underway today in Smithers between federal and provincial ministers and Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs.

Horgan says BC's interests are represented by Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser, and Horgan was updated on the discussions last night and understands they are going well.

He says the disputed natural gas pipeline crossing traditional Wet'suwet'en territory has been endorsed by 20 Indigenous communities ``from wellhead to water line,'' including elected Wet'suwet'en leaders, and he says it's up to the nation to resolve this issue.

Horgan made his comments in Delta where he was marking the introduction of a grant to help low and middle-income students afford post-secondary training.
