‘Same age’ question of journalist irritates PM of New Zealand Jacinda and PM of Finland Sanna

Addressing a joint press conference in Auckland, Jacinda Ardern and Sanna Marin responded to the question by saying that they met because they are PMs and not because of their genders.

Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin and Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern expressed their annoyance at the question of a journalist who taunted them of the same age group.

PMs of New Zealand and Finland hit back at a journalist’s question that they arranged the meeting as they are “similar in age”.

Addressing a joint press conference in Auckland, Jacinda Ardern and Sanna Marin responded to the question by saying that they met because they are PMs and not because of their genders.

“Many people might be wondering that you two are meeting because you are similar in age with a lot of common stuff,” asked the journalist.

“My first question is, I wonder whether or not anyone ever asked Obama and John Kerry if they met because of similar age?” asked PM Ardern.

New Zealand’s PM then discussed the relations between the two countries.

Finland’s PM said, “We are now meeting because we are prime ministers, of course.”

She said that the leaders have a lot of things in common.

This is the first time a Finnish female prime minister visited New Zealand and held a meeting with her counterpart.
