Ardern, new govt tackles first international tests - analysis
Jacinda Ardern has followed through with her promise to push Australia over the plight of asylum seekers on Manus Island. While she has been denied a substantive meeting with her Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull on the issue she has helped maintain pressure on his Government with a three million dollar contribution to help alleviate the suffering of the Manus Island refugees. It's been a big week for the new Prime Minister and the new Foreign Minister Winston Peters attending both APEC and the East Asia Summit. Professor of international law Alexander Gillespie and former diplomat Peter Withers join us to discuss the week.
