Jacinda Ardern Slams Scott Morrison For Cancelling Alleged Terrorist's Aussie Citizenship

‘Tired of Australia exporting its problems’: Ardern denounces Morrison over detainee in Turkey

In an unusually blunt message to her counterpart Scott Morrison, Ardern said Canberra was "wrong" to expect New Zealand to accept the woman, who she said had strong ties to Australia. She was accompanied by two small children.

Ardern has accused Australia of cancelling her citizenship after her arrest, leaving New Zealand exclusively responsible for her terrorism-related activities and involvements. "We believe Australia has abdicated its responsibilities".

Ardern said Australia abdicated its responsibility for dealing with the woman.

"New Zealand's decision to conclude its deployment to Afghanistan in 2021 has been discussed with our key partners, with whom we have cooperated closely over the last twenty years".

Ardern said the woman had been a dual Australian-New Zealand citizen until authorities in Canberra cancelled her passport, making her Wellington's responsibility.

"Young people should not miss out on their education because of something that is a normal part of life for half the population", said the New Zealand PM speaking at Fairfield College in Hamilton. "Australia did not act in good faith".

"Providing free period products at school is one way the Government can directly address poverty, help increase school attendance, and make a positive impact on children's well being", said Ardern.

No. 1 Barty upset in Australian quarterfinals by Muchova
Barty quickly left the court after the match, visibly disappointed with her loss in a tournament she had a serious chance to win. Muchova came out of the break and broke Barty the next game, who lost all four points on her racket with unforced errors.

Janidra Ardern, New Zealand's Prime Minister, Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta, and Defense Minister Peeni Henare announced that the country will withdraw its troops and end the military missions in Afghanistan.

But Morrison said he was simply doing his job by protecting Australia's interests. "And I ask of Australia that they do the same".

"Australia's interest here is that we do not want to see terrorists who fought with terrorism organisations enjoying privileges of citizenship, which I think they forfeit the second they engage as an enemy of our country".

Earlier this month, United Nations human rights experts urged 57 countries to repatriate nationals believed to be languishing in Syria's squalid al-Hol and al-Roj camps, where thousands are at risk of violence, exploitation and death.

The dual citizen allegedly travelled to Syria on her Australian passport and has since been detained in Turkey with her two children.

Members of the network told Middle East Eye that they were choosing to remain anonymous at this point in order to protect themselves and their relatives in Syria.

"They fear being harassed or stigmatised because they have relatives detained in northeast Syria".
