NZ Parliament debates call for ceasefire in Gaza

Posted on 08 December 2023

In Parliament on Thursday, Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters passed a motion regarding the Middle East conflict, urging "all parties involved in the conflict — as well as countries with influence in the region — to take urgent steps towards establishing a ceasefire". This was followed by a debate where the opposition called for a stronger position on the conflict, including "immediate and permanent ceasefire", with a similar sentiment also expressed by Helen Clark. 

CID and a group of our members are advocating to the New Zealand Government, demanding a lasting ceasefire and more work to strengthen international support for a permanent solution to the conflict.
