Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull Wednesday left open the possibility of resettlement in New Zealand for asylum seekers facing repatriation to a detention camp in the tiny Pacific Island nation of Nauru.New Zealand Prime Minister John Key arrives in Australia Thursday for talks that may revive an offer by Key to accept some asylum seekers now in Australia, providing Turnbull a way out of a growing political headache.Key reached a deal in 2013 with former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard to resettle 150 refugees then in Australia as part of New Zealand's annual humanitarian intake of 750 refugees.Abbott had campaigned relentlessly on securing Australia's borders and argued that resettling refugees in New Zealand would spur people smugglers to resume attempts to reach Australia.
