Scott Morrison says NZ and Australia won't be divided

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 1 June 2021

"People are always trying to divide Australia and New Zealand - they will not succeed."

That was Scott Morrison's response when asked if Wellington's position on China is harming the relationship with Canberra.

He was in Queenstown for 24 hours to attend the annual Trans-Tasman leaders dialogue, where China and its influence in the region, was always going to be the dominant issue.

RNZ political editor Jane Patterson was there and filed this report.
