New Zealand minister fears 'unsettled world' amid Huawei row

David Parker says 'rules-based order' under threat following multiple arrests

"It concerns us that the rules-based order is under threat," says New Zealand Trade Minister David Parker.

WELLINGTON -- New Zealand aims to keep a balanced relationship with China even after deciding just last month to bar Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies from participating in a mobile carrier's 5G upgrade, Trade Minister David Parker said on Wednesday.

"We have a strong trading relationship with China, which we value," Parker told Nikkei in an interview here. "It's always possible for nontrade issues to affect trade, but we try to maintain those multiple layers of our relationship."
