Mr Key said Mr Little knew the numbers of New Zealanders considered possible risks as extremists had increased from 30-40 last year to 60-70 now. There was also a greater risk to travelling New Zealanders.

“But he says he’d do nothing. I don’t believe him. If it’s really true then you’d have to question whether he’d make the right decisions for New Zealand.”

He believed Mr Little’s objections were simply politicking and if it was in Government, it would have deployed the troops as the former Labour Government had sent engineers to Iraq and the SAS in a combat role to Afghanistan.
