Kiwis are fairly divided over whether this country should become involved in any North Korean conflict.

The rogue state fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido today - which is seen as Kim Jong-un's most brazen provocation yet.

A Herald/ZB/Kantar opinion poll show 43 percent of Kiwis don't want a bar of being involved in any American led war against North Korea.

But 35 percent said if there's a United Nations mandate we should be involved - if Kim makes the first strike.

And just 12 percent say this country should be backing its allies, regardless of who strikes first.
