NATO's agreed to a fundamental shift to how it responds to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The alliance has wrapped up a summit in Madrid, agreeing to set up a permanent army headquarters in Poland and make an unshakeable commitment to Ukraine

Jacinda Ardern has addressed the summit, and says the war is the single biggest issue facing the continent.

Ardern is now on her way to Brussels, where she'll continue talks on a free trade agreement with the EU.

Former trade negotiator Charles Finny told Mike Hosking what Europe is proposing wouldn't be good for our dairy and meat sectors.

“They’re talking about continuing quotas, limiting the amount we can send and also tariffs within those quotas. They might be actually below what we’re trading right now.”
