UPDATED 2:58pm: Suggestions US agencies are involved in spying on Kiwis are being downplayed by the Prime Minister.

Green Party co-leader Russel Norman is pushing for fresh answers after US president Barack Obama said the USA doesn't have any no-spy agreements with any country.

He says that undermines contrary assurances made by John Key.

Dr Norman says New Zealanders need to know if their privacy has been breached by the NSA.

John Key suspects Dr Norman is trying to distract attention away from his own political problems and is sceptical the NSA has a major focus on New Zealand.

"I don't believe myself, everything I've seen and I know, that there has been, or ever will be, widespread or wholesale spying of New Zealanders by the Americans. I just don't believe that to be correct."
