Leweni says no word from UN regarding peacekeeping

Fiji's Permanent Secretary for Information, Lieutenant Colonel Neumi Leweni, says there's been no letter from the United Nations, that Fijian soldiers will no longer be used for peacekeeping operations.

Yesterday Australia's Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the UN will stop using Fijian troops.

Neumi Leweni says they won't believe it until they receive confirmation from the UN.

The Fiji military has had a long relationship with the UN's peacekeeping operations, dating back to 1978.

There are currently 282 Fijian soldiers on UN peacekeeping operations.
