"New Zealand's Minister of Foreign Affairs Winston Peters used his address at the Anzac commemorations in Gallipoli in Turkey to ask countries to honour the dead by talking, instead of initiating war.
Almost 8500 men were in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in 1915. More than one in four were killed.
Mr Peters quoted the Turkish commander Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who said nations need to commit to resolving their differences without resorting to war.
Mr Peters said that is the best way to honour men who fought and died in Gallipoli."
