New Zealand Prime Minister Jesinda Ardern has targeted Australia in the wake of a controversy in the case of a woman accused of having links with the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS). He has accused the Australian government of running away from responsibilities. Ardern said that New Zealand is tired of facing the problems being created one by one from Australia.
According to a BBC report, the 26-year-old woman held both Australia and New Zealand citizenship until Canberra revoked it last year. He was captured while entering Turkey from Syria with his two children. She has since faced deportation in New Zealand. Ardern however said that the woman should be sent to Australia.
Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense recognized
Ardern said the woman was identified by the Turkish Ministry of National Defense as a member of the IS, she had not lived in New Zealand since childhood. Her family left New Zealand when she was 6 years old. After this he moved to Australia and acquired citizenship there. He then went to Syria on an Australian passport.
Australian Prime Minister also responded
Meanwhile, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said his job was to protect Australia’s interests. He said that a law passed in Parliament automatically repeals the dual citizenship of an accused involved in terrorist activities. He said that he would soon talk to the Prime Minister of the neighboring country.
