  • Prime Minister Scott Morrison arrives for the Pacific Islands Forum in Funafuti Tuvalu Wednesday

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says while there has been a great deal of agreement in Funafuti, Tuvalu during the 50th Pacific Islands Forum, it is clear that there are differences of opinion, emphasis and approach between the island nations and New Zealand, on the one hand, and Australia on the other.

"The fact is New Zealand's carbon dioxide has grown by 10.8 per cent per capita since 1990".

Jacinda Ardern made the announcement tonight after days of protests at the South Auckland site. "Look I hear the calls for a visit, but I keep in mind that actually a visit wouldn't find that solution".

'She is a joke this woman, an absolute and utter lightweight. "Jones should also apologise to @jacindaardern for his latest misogynistic rant".

Social media users, including Australian Council of Trade Unions chief Sally McManus, slammed his remarks as "disgusting".

"I mean this is appalling language - and at a time when we are doing everything we can as a national priority to stamp out violence against women and children, you have this broadcaster who uses the language of violence against women as part of his regular rhetoric".

"I just wonder whether Scott Morrison is going to be fully briefed to shove a sock down her throat".

Mr Morrison also criticised Jones, saying the 2GB presenter's comments were "way out of line".

Last year Jones said he had used words that "he regret" when telling CEO Louise Herron that she was "out of her depth".

After collective outrage, Jones was forced to pack peddle.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was quiet and straight-faced heading into the retreat. It's unacceptable and I accept it is unacceptable.

"Emissions reduction is a very hard issue for the Coalition, and you've got to cut Morrison some slack on this, or give him some understanding".

Prior to sending an apology email to Arden, the Radio 2GB host said his comments about Ardern had been wilfully "misinterpreted" by his many critics.

"I think ultimately what the Pacific will want is some consensus around the statement, and be able to say "this is the Pacific's view, this is the Pacific's voice on the issue of climate change", Ms Ardern said. Of course, I would not wish any harm to Jacinda Ardern.

The leader of protest group SOUL, Pania Newton, said she wanted Ms Ardern to understand why the land meant so much to the people occupying it.

On Friday morning, he returned to the subject, continuing to berate Ardern and reading out messages of support from listeners, including one he claimed was from "a very prominent female political figure" who said, "Alan don't worry, I haven't met a man more supportive of women".
