The diplomatic stand off between New Zealand and Nauru appears to be continuing.

Diplomatic relations with Nauru have been frosty ever since New Zealand put a hold on aid funding for Nauru's justice system last September.

The freeze followed concerns held about Nauru's justice sector and human rights matters.

Foreign Minister Murray McCully says he's not aware of any further discussions having taken place between Nauru and New Zealand and describes matters as being in a state of flux.
