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
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.
