It seems the USA still hasn't quite forgiven NZ for being a sovereign nation with our anti nuclear policy, so won't let our frigates tie up in Pearl Harbour whilst participating in military exercises.

New Zealand is a sovereign nation and can do what it wants in its harbours. The U.S. is a sovereign nation and can do what it wants in its harbours. So, what's the problem?

Actually, the U.S. is probably right to be cautious. Who knows what kind of nasty stuff the Kiwis might have on their ships?
