    A former National Party leader is warning against picking sides between China and the US

    A former National Party leader is warning against picking sides between China and the US


    China's postponed the biggest tourism event this year, the launch of the China-New Zealand Year of Tourism scheduled for Te Papa next week.

    Jacinda Ardern is brushing off concerns on relations, saying they're still scheduling a date for her to visit the country.

    But Don Brash says we need to walk a fine line.

    He says China is New Zealand's biggest trading partner by a significant margin - and we can't afford to offend them.

    Brash says the conflict between China and the US is uncomfortable.
