The Prime Minister of Tonga says the Fiji interim regime will have to listen to the international community sooner or later if they are to move their country forward.
Feleti Sevele has told RNZI a fresh approach is needed by the region to engage with Fiji’s military government, following Fiji's suspension from the Pacific Islands Forum.
“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.”
