Muslims in New Zealand Will be Safe After Mosque Attack- NZ Minister

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday called New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and condemned the terrorist attack against two mosques in Christchurch by a right-wing terrorist.

Earlier in a speech during a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul (OIC), Mr Erdogan thanked the people and authorities of New Zealand for their sensitivity and determination against the attack.

New Zealand's deputy prime minister is attending an emergency session of an umbrella organization of Muslim nations in Turkey after a gunman killed 50 people in two mosques in the South Pacific nation.

The Turkish president has sparked outrage overseas by screening excerpts of video filmed by the mosque gunman at campaign rallies to denounce Islamophobia, but also to shore up Islamic and nationalist sentiments before the March 31 local elections.

Foreign Minister Winston Peters addresses a press conference following an emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul, 22 March.

Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, was arrested and charged with murder.

"We have to show our reaction in a strong way so that similar pains don't occur again and mosques are not turned into a bloodbath", he said.

The accused gunman, a self-avowed white supremacist from Australia, livestreamed much of the attack and spread a manifesto on social media claiming it was a strike against Muslim "invaders".

The Turkish president is continuing to show the video from last week's terror attack, despite a meeting with Foreign Minister Winston Peters.

Mr Erdogan also drew Australia's anger for comments suggesting Australians and New Zealanders with anti-Muslim sentiments would be sent back in coffins like their ancestors who fought against Turks in the First World War Battle of Gallipoli.

Mr Erdogan, who is seeking to drum up support for his party in local elections, said earlier in the week that Turkey would make the attacker pay if New Zealand did not.

"This person will face the full force of New Zealand law, and will spend the rest of his life in isolation in a New Zealand prison", Mr Peters said, adding later that "misinterpretations" in the days following the shooting had been cleared up following his meeting with Mr Erdogan and the OIC.

But Peters emerged from a brief meeting with Erdogan and struck a conciliatory tone, saying that he had not raised at the meeting some of the most controversial comments the Turkish leader has made at rallies.

"We are returning home to New Zealand with grateful reassurance that our people who come here to commemorate ANZAC will be as welcome as they always were", he told reporters.

"We are here to show we are one body against Islamophobic actions across the world", he said.

"I did not see any sound, long-term peaceful purposes in raising it", Mr Peters said immediately following the meeting, at which it had been widely expected that he would raise the issue.
