The New Zealand Navy has delivered about 70,000 litres of diesel to the northern Cook Islands after a request for assistance.

On its first mission to the Pacific this year, the HMNZS Endeavour supplied the fuel to power generators in Nassau, Pukapuka and Penrhyn Islands.

Commander Keith Robb says the fuel will last at least three months.
