New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern: ‘I’m a mother, not a superwoman’ – BBC News I was rather hoping that you would have your 7 month old, baby girl with you on this trip, because we regularly political interviews and we regularly have babies and children on the set, but never the same time. So it would have been a first for us, but I understand why we’re actually just just the one to be sickly. She troubles with me all the time, but internationally it was just the UN General Assembly will she. She came with me because she was quite Young. We haven’t been able to go into the country that I visited, so it is at least she is, and in the in the gallery above us, because you were still breastfeeding. Do you feel unsettled when you’re away from her will not find it difficult.? I try and keep contacts. Yes the purpose of your meeting with the British prime minister later today. It was so cute that promotes New Zealand’s, currently negotiating a free trade agreement with the EU opportunity for me to stop Hearing in London in August as deep as long as it’s not just economically, but obviously is it important trading partner for us at the point? That’S the UK’s already to do so. We’Re very came to enter into a free trade agreement, excellent potential future pineapple that. Why is that important exports from New Zealand to this country? I represents roughly 5 billion dollars worth of Tribeca significant for smooth trading Nation, like house inside know.

What do you think of the way she’s handling things is dish out advice or commentary on other people’s politics? It’S a difficult diamond and the the woman of remarkable resilience. I’Ve admiration for number of politicians for what they have to navigate, and this is one of those situations that would, I can speak to a different political system Jiminy. I run a government that has a full majority of 3 Posse. So what on at least very used to is that we we have constantly negotiating with that’s, been some criticism of the British prime minister that she hasn’t been able to bring people with her check spending environment. We that telephone government about people skills we are all used to having to negotiate having to compromise having to taste each other’s read line. That something said. I only know how to do politics in 2020 to decide whether cannabis can be used for recreational purposes. A good way to resolve she said can be. They can be useful tools at the same time, we’ve had them in the past. On with, I haven’t been able to resolve issues as well, so I think it’s only, I think, is politicians in the future. I can cook under those circumstances. It’S a very useful. Do you worry about the prospects of this country leaving the EU without to do it? Would impact on just about everybody business in particular? It would be very particular small businesses, and absolutely I will be very open that I didn’t know do scenario would be very, very difficult, but I think that everyone is okay.. Although the leader of the Labour party in this country, Jeremy, corbyn, British prime minister, Theresa, May to take New Deal off the table, so that did not agree with it can hand on hot side from elpis speaks of a New Zealand businesses to speak to difficult to Meet like I’m prime minister May everyone is very very occupy.

I want you to ask you about the death of the British Backpacker and lost you last week. Amount of Peyton quotes and denies her mother. I need a news conference. Last month you apologized, on behalf of your country, to Grace’s family. Let’S just take a look since of hood and shine that this is heavens and our country a place that Prides itself on a Hospitality on Alma Nike Tanger, especially to those who are visiting our Shores and so on behalf of New Zealand. I want to apologize to Grace’s family and she wasn’t, and I’m sorry for that feel that you wanted to apologize. Feelings is a place that really Prides itself on its Hospitality. I used to wear them in a katana, and that really speaks to that idea that if you come to these young Vici for you, we look half do. We have a real hospitality and it is deeply hold and so to have a young person who came to enjoy New Zealand and his dear life cut tragically short, stop very, very deeply. All of us feeling we experience the loss of a woman at a staggering rice that is not to diminish that, but this was a particular case. We think this was a deist.
