In the Question and Answer (Q&A), Peters was asked: "What are your message to the leaders of ASEAN?"

“I believe that one of the biggest problems of our country is divisiveness: in politics, religion, and culture,” Peters said.

“I believe it is same across the world and that is something I would like to address. If we can learn to tolerate each other’s differences and respect each other, then we will be a stronger nation going forward,” she added.
