  • Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern addresses the civil society meeting the first of several at the Christchurch Call summit in Paris

"That does not mean you need access to military-style semiautomatic weapons and assault rifles", Ardern said.

"Macron was one of the first leaders to call the prime minister after the attack, and he has long made removing hateful online content a priority", New Zealand's ambassador to France, Jane Coombs, told journalists on Monday. It was then shared on Youtube and Twitter.

Ardern was set to join other world leaders in launching the "Christchurch Call" to curb online extremism at an worldwide meeting in Paris on Wednesday.

She further pressed at the interview that guns do have a practical goal in New Zealand but that simple doesn't mean that citizens should have access to semi automatic and military styled weapons and assault rifles.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern welcomed the move as "a good first step".

While speaking in an interview with TVNZ, Wilson spoke about how she attempted to make contact with Ardern during her recent trip to New Zealand.

She vowed that Australia changed its gun laws after after experiencing a massacre.

Facebook will be represented by former UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, its vice president of global policy and communications.

Social media users have reacted to the matter with comments about how adorable the gesture was.

Ardern said that the meeting is not a call for regulation but a firm step to "bring all the tech moguls to the table".

While Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said livestreaming safeguards would be explored, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has already said that putting a delay on livestreams would fundamentally break the service.

But she said governments also had a role to play in preventing radicalisation in their communities.

Ms Ardern said the fact that she herself inadvertently saw the video of the shootings on Facebook highlighted how available it was.

Tristan Harris, co-founders of the Centre for Humane Technology, who formerly worked for Google, warned that online platforms like YouTube, where 70% t of video watching time is via its recommendations, pushed people towards harmful content.

Lastly she concluded that the way the attack was broadcasted online needed a global solution and hence it was essential to get in touch with various worldwide leaders to find a collective response.
