No surprise over Fiji statement - NZ

The New Zealand Government says Fiji's reluctance to re-appoint Australian and New Zealand High Commissioners is not a surprise.
 
Commodore Frank Bainimarama has told Radio Tarana, which is based in Auckland, that there will be no re-appointment of high commissioners for at least two years unless New Zealand and Australia remove sanctions.

A spokeperson at the foreign affair minister's office says this should not affect recent progress to reopen the respective diplomatic missions in Suva and Wellington next month.

He says Commodore Bainimarama's statement is a clarification of Fiji's position following a recent statement by Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully that sanctions against Fiji are to remain in place.- Radio NZ
