The New Zealand prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, says the UN has failed in its response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. 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
