Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin (L) shakes hands with New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern during a bilateral meeting in Auckland.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her Finland counterpart Sanna Marin gave a fitting reply to a reporter who asked them if the two world leaders are meeting because they’re similar in age.

The question was asked at a media briefing in Auckland during Marin’s official visit to New Zealand.

"A lot of people will be wondering are you two meeting just because you're similar in age and got a lot of common stuff there, when you got into politics and stuff. What Kiwis,” a male reporter asked.


Jacinda Ardern, 42, interrupted him, saying she wondered "whether or not anyone ever asked Barack Obama and John Key if they met because they were of similar age."
