WELLINGTON, New Zealand — This country will start building its own defense satellite communications station next year to boost intelligence gathering, Prime Minister David Lange said Wednesday. He said the station, in the north of New Zealand's South Island, would enhance "intelligence capabilities."

The United States officially stopped sending intelligence reports to New Zealand when Wellington banned nuclear-powered or nuclear-armed warships from its ports in 1985.
