As Prime Minister I have overarching responsibility for New Zealand’s national security.

That covers a wide range of threats and risks, from earthquakes to espionage, and cyber-attacks to conflicts between states.

It’s about protecting our way of life and the values that shape our society.

The Government takes its national security obligations very seriously.
