Prime Minister John Key says he is pleased the US has accepted New Zealand's invitation to send a ship but it could be weeks before he makes a decision on whether to allow it to enter New Zealand waters. Key said Vice President Joe Biden had accepted the invitation to send a ship to the Royal NZ Navy 75th Anniversary in November. It would be the first US military ship since New Zealand passed its anti-nuclear legislation in 1987.
