Speaking on foreign policy at the Lowy Institute in Australia, Ardern criticised the UN ‘because of the position taken by Russia in the security council – a morally bankrupt position on their part in the wake of a morally bankrupt and illegal war’. Ardern also addressed the impact of climate change in the Pacific while praising the relationship between New Zealand and Australia
