President holds talks with UK minister

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Update: 5:55PM FIJI and the United Kingdom have had talks about Fiji's return to the Commonwealth.

Fiji was suspended from the Commonwealth in September 2009 because it had demanded that Fiji commit, by September 1, 2009 to resuming negotiations with the opposition and to holding credible elections by October 2010.

Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama had then stated to the Commonwealth that elections in 2010 would be premature and had pointed to 2014 as the suitable time.

Last week President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau met with the United Kingdom Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Hugo Swire, according to a government statement.
