New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has spoken at the United Nations.

During her speech, Ardern condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and called for a complete ban on all nuclear weapons.

The prime minister also used her speech to demand UN reform, saying it must move with the times.

“Let us all be clear: Russia’s war is illegal. It is immoral,” she said.

“It is a direct attack on the UN Charter and the international rules-based system and everything that this community should stand for.”

Ardern told the audience Russian president Vladimir Putin’s recent rhetoric proved his war was “based on a lie”.
