Saudi-NZ relationship undamaged by sheep saga - Peters

From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 13 February 2019

The Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters says there has been absolutely no damage to New Zealand's relationship with Saudi Arabia after the government canned an abbatoir destined for a Saudi businessman. The Government has pulled the pin on the final stage of the controversial Saudi sheep deal, saving taxpayers one-million-dollars but losing ten-million-dollars in the process that began under the former National-led government.
