Winston Peters on police recruitment and UNRWA funding

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 31 January 2024

The Foreign Minister says New Zealand has not suspended the funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees.

Nonetheless, the government is reviewing whether it will send this year's $1 million, after Israel accused a dozen of the aid agency's staff of taking part in the October 7th attack by Hamas.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs Winston Peters will make the final decision on whether to continue the funding.

Peters spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
