As they already have a deal with the United States for resettlements of refugees. About 600 men are refusing to leave a decommissioned Australian centre on Manus island saying they fear attacks from locals, who resent their presence. Mr. Turnbull said he would not, at this time, take up the offer from New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.
