Winston Peters reveals he has made preliminary contact with Bush administration regarding ANZUS defence ties.

Peters revealed he has already made preliminary contact with the Bush administration and plans to firm up those overtures at this week’s APEC meeting. Read about Peters other statements regarding ANZUS, Asians and a range of other key issues in the latest Investigate magazine, which is on sale nationwide tomorrow.

Events began with Prime Minister Helen Clark quashing National's election chances by accusing Don Brash of having a secret agenda to snuggle up to the United States.

Former Foreign Minister Phil Goff replied that the Anzus defence ties were "irrelevant" - making new Foreign Minister Winston Peters call for an ‘enhanced’ relationship with the US, very poignant

This month in Investigate Magazine…. After outlining some of the current security threats in our region, interviewer Ian Wishart asked Peters “Does New Zealand need Australia and the US as defence partners?

To which Winston Peters replies “Let me put it this way, there is no doubt that we need an enhanced relationship.”
