WELLINGTON (RNZI Online/Pacific Media Watch): Tonga’s Prime Minister says Fiji’s military rulers will have to listen to the international community sooner or later if they are to move their country forward, Radio NZ International reports.



Feleti Sevele says a fresh approach is needed by the region to engaging with Fiji’s military government, following the interim regime’s suspension from the Pacific Islands Forum.



Dr Sevele says decisions taken on Fiji by Forum leaders at their last two meetings were judged at the time to be the right moves to make.



He admits that since then, Fiji has gone in the opposite direction to where the Forum wants it to go, but says the two sides will need to find a balance.



“Fiji needs the international community. Fiji needs the Forum… perhaps more than the Forum needs Fiji. But the Forum still needs Fiji. So let’s perhaps give it a pause, stand back… in time of course Fiji has got to listen to the international community. It’s a two-way affair.”

One thought on “Tonga PM says Fiji needs to listen to outside

  1. A “fresh approach” hmmm how many more ways does Sevele need to hear Frank say NO ELECTIONS which is contrary to what he promised (coerced or otherwise, Frank is a grown man and if he is that SIMPLE that he needs people to put words in his mouth and ideas in his head, its not surprising he’s doing a shoddy job with “governing”)

    FRANK (not FIJI as he doesn’t speak for Fiji legally) needs to listen to the international community NOW not later.
