Australia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop has arrived in New Zealand to sit down with Winston Peters.

This will be the second time the two have met since Peters became our Minister of Foreign Affairs, but the first time she has visited since Labour formed a Government.

The two are set to discuss economic growth, stability and security to the pacific.

Julie Bishop told Larry Williams that she and Peters will be discussing a ‘whole range of issues’.

She reiterated that Australia sees New Zealand as a ‘natural partner’.

She also spoke about North Korea, Trump and the coverage of Barnaby Joyce’s affair.
