New Zealand Prime Minster Chris Hipkins has had his first official meeting with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Hipkins made a quick trip across the Tasman to meet the Australian leader earlier this week.

The two leaders talked about trade, immigration, and the rights of Kiwis living in Australia.

“We got on well,” said Hipkins. “We have a lot in common. Leaders of Labour parties, relatively recent Prime Ministers of our countries.”

After the meeting, Albanese addressed the long-standing policy that Australia has of deporting New Zealand Kiwi citizens convicted of a crime.

He said that from now on Australia would have a commonsense approach and assess a person’s ties to Australia when assessing these cases.
