Iran nuclear talks to continue

Foreign Minister Murray McCully today welcomed the decision by the P5+1 (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) and Iran to continue negotiations on Iran’s nuclear programme.

“While it is disappointing that agreement has not been reached by the 20 July deadline, this was always going to be difficult given the complexity of the issues involved,” Mr McCully says.

“These negotiations are complex as they deal both with the technical aspects of Iran’s nuclear programme and the need to rebuild trust between Iran and the international community.

“What matters is that both sides are continuing to talk. New Zealand supports fully this commitment to reaching a comprehensive agreement. An end to sanctions, and the normalisation of our bilateral relationship, depends on this agreement being reached,” Mr McCully says.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
