Reporter asks if Jacinda Ardern and Sanna Marin are meeting because of their similar age
Guardian, 30 Nov 2022
A journalist has asked New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern if she only met with Finnish leader Sanna Marin due to their similar age and other 'common stuff'. Joey Dwyer asked, 'A lot of people will be wondering if you two are meeting just because you are similar in age and got a lot of common stuff there ... Or can Kiwis expect to see more deals between our two countries down the line?' Ardern hit back saying, 'I wonder whether or not anyone ever asked Barack Obama and John Key if they met because they were of similar age’. Marin said, 'We are meeting because we are prime ministers'
