So this is why McCully is anti-Israel and pro-Arab

Murray McCully

Foreign Minister Murray McCully is heading to Iran this weekend as New Zealand continues to rebuild its relationship with the once blacklisted Middle East state.

Mr McCully will hold talks with his counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif, who visited New Zealand earlier this year, and other members of Iran’s government.

“Our discussions will cover a range of Middle East regional security issues and trade and economic relations between our two countries,” Mr McCully said ahead of the trip.

While in the capital Tehran, Mr McCully will announce the reinstatement of formal talks between New Zealand and Iran, known as the Political and Economic Cooperation Commission.
Mr McCully will also sign an agricultural cooperation agreement, which will support exchanges between farmers and producers.

New Zealand is looking to reboot its trade relationship with Iran following the landmark nuclear deal brokered last year and the lifting of United Nations sanctions, which New Zealand formalised in February.

At one point prior to sanctions being imposed in 2006, Iran was New Zealand’s fifth largest trading partner.

So the coward gives Israel a clear kick in the slats just as he’s about to polish some knobs in countries that want to wipe Israel off the map.

From Iran, Mr McCully will head to Istanbul, Turkey, to attend the United Nations World Humanitarian Summit.

“The summit is a chance for the international community to discuss our collective response to armed conflict and natural disasters. We will be particularly focused on highlighting the specific humanitarian needs of the Pacific region,” he said.

He’ll do just fine.  He’ll know all about being anti-Israel and knows the right side of an Arab agri-bribe when he sees one.

    His pronouncements this week were stridently anti-Israel, so the Iranians will love him. I suppose that’s one way to make friends. Or is he hoping to become the NZ Ambassador to Iran? I suspect that this is the real reason.

    I’m sure he will give the Iranians a good scolding for their repeated violations of the Nuclear Agreement that he was so proud of while he’s there.

    That’s an unfortunate expression he has on his face – it reminds me of the look that the cat has when the vet inserts the thermometer.

    And we can expect to see a few more $11.5 million NZ taxpayer-funded donations to Iranian businessmen for their startup sheep farms in the Iranian desert.
    Trust a politician …?

    This was exactly my suspicion. The sad and pathetic anti-Israeli carry-on by the servile McCully is, frankly speaking, unfortunate in the extreme. His arrival in Teheran will be followed by unctuous and glowing reference to how much New Zealand supports them and their role in the region, in order to chase the hope for some more export dollars, and no doubt get another vote for Clarke’s tilt at the top job at the UN.

    Disingenuous obsequious international politics at its worst.


    Exactly my thought when I read about his visit to Iran, it really saddens me……..I wonder, while he is at it, maybe he can declare Isreal as being the guilty force behind global warming….after all, with all the technological developments coming out of Israel, they must be guilty….

    Okay, seriously, what the hell is Key thinking allowing this anti-Semite anywhere near trade talks of any kind in the Middle East? Diplomatic would be the very last thing I would call this fool. Politicians…go figure.

    Sorry guys it comes down to money.
    “At one point prior to sanctions being imposed in 2006, Iran was New Zealand’s fifth largest trading partner.”
    McCully and MClay would walk shoe-less to Mecca if they could be back in Tehrans good books.
    This would be bigger than TPP.

  • Eddie

    Is there any NZ politician who will call the Palestinian attacks terrorism or not blame Israel? I need a party that I can vote for.
