McCully and Carr to meet Fijian minister
Fri, 27 Jul 2012 2:13p.m.
Foreign Minister Murray McCully and his Australian counterpart Bob Carr will hold talks with Fiji's Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola in Sydney on Monday.
The meeting will follow the regular six-monthly discussion between Mr McCully and Mr Carr.
"I am pleased that alongside our regular bilateral consultations we will have the chance to engage with our Fijian counterpart, and to reiterate our support for the important transition under way there," Mr McCully said today.
The government is encouraging Fiji's prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, to stay on track with his promise to hold elections in 2014.
Cdre Bainimarama seized power through a military coup in 2006 and his regime is working on a constitutional review which will precede the elections.
New Zealand has offered financial help in the process and has sent election experts to Fiji.
