A spokesman for the Australian Prime Ministers office says Fiji won't be allowed to attend the Pacific Leaders Forum in Cairns next month.
Frank Leverett has told Radio Australia that although Fiji is still a member of the Forum, it has been suspended from attending any meetings.
Fiji was suspended in May after interim prime minister Frank Bainimarama failed to set a date for elections later this year.
The leaders of Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands have said they want the sanctions on Fiji lifted.
Yesterday New Zealand prime minister John Key said Fiji will be discussed at next month's Forum but it will not dominate discussions.
