Fiji does not deserve to be back: Key
August 31, 2012 8:11 pm
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key says Fiji does not deserve to be reinstated to the Pacific Islands Forum yet.
He says Forum leaders are still in doubt whether Prime Minister – Voreqe Bainimarama will follow through on promises to hold elections in 2014.
He says Fiji should only be allowed back into the forum when democratic elections are done and the military are back in the barracks.
Other Pacific leaders had similar views.
Cook Islands Prime Minister Henry Puna says he also believes suspension should not be lifted.
Puna says it is important that the integrity of the forum leaders’ position is maintained.
The 15 leaders of the forum will once again discuss about Fiji today.
