THE Group of 77 plus China under Fiji chairmanship should see issues facing the Pacific and developing nations being given more priority in the global organisation of the UN.

This was the view of Vanuatu Prime Minister Moana Carcasses Kalosil.

Speaking at a press conference held at the G77 meeting at Natadola yesterday, Mr Kalosil said Fiji PM Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama had all the qualities needed for a strong and decisive leader.

"PM Bainimarama is a strong leader and through his leadership, the Pacific will shine and that's what we want," he said.

"Some countries around the Pacific do not agree but I believe that as a group, we should support each other and I am very supportive of Commodore Bainimarama and his style of leadership."

Mr Kalosil said he had personally commended Commodore Bainimarama on the progress being made towards general elections next year and also said the move towards democracy was welcomed.

"I have commended the PM on the progress at the moment."
