NZ ready to help Fiji because 'we love their people' says PM

Fiji takes heart from Thai flood surviors : NaDraki Weather. 






The Prime Minister of New Zealand, John Key, says the country will offer flood assistance to Fiji whether Frank Bainimarama asks for help or not.

New Zealand says Fiji hasn't asked for international assistance yet but it is on standby to provide aid.

"Typically, that's been the case in the past when they've had floods and various natural disasters, New Zealand's come to their aid," Key told New Zealand's Radio Live.

"I know the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is monitoring it closely and no doubt we will end up giving some support there.

John Key
"Typically, what we've done in the past is give the resources to a non-government organisation on the ground we trust, say the Red Cross, rather than give it to the government to administer." 

Key says the Government's disagreement with the Fiji regime didn't stop it giving aid.

"Yes we disagree with the formation of that government through force but we have a long history with Fiji, we love their people and we are going to support them."

  3. Hearing Mr Keys comments touches on my emotions. This is a show of the real friend when another is in need. Like a real statesman all petty differences are put aside for the sake of humanity. Wonder what will be Bai and co's response to this generous gesture by someone they regard as an enemy. The true issue here is NZ has a gripe with the illegal regime and not its people. It is making a principled stand in objecting to law breakers as in this case with the regime.

  4. Too proud to ask for help.
    Too scared that he will look weak.
    Too scared that NZ army might spy.

    Reminds me of all Dictators.
    Kim Jong il of North Korea never asked for help while millions of his people died of starvation every year ( yes that's right "starvation") while he spent all his money on military stuff including nuclear power.

    We have Kim Jong Bai in Fiji.
    I'm sure NZ and Australian army would love to help with their helicopters and rubber dinghies etc etc.

    Like all dictators, Bai would rather see Fijians suffer due to his own fears.

    Fijians must understand that somethings are right and somethings are wrong and we must remove what is wrong.
    We can't just accept everything.
    Bai's coup was wrong and we must remove him now. Not 2014.

    Disasters will keep coming to Fiji until we remove this arsehole and all who are helping him.

    -Valataka na Dina.

  6. NZ has always been the first country to offer assistance to pacific islands in times of crisis. But Vuaka and his boss Aiyarse are so stubborn.

    Thank you NZ and I'm sure Australia will be next to offer help. As for China, well they're only interested if they get money in return.

    Suck on that one Voceke.

    Vinaka vakalevu Mr PM Keys for your kind offer. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Isa, I'm so ashamed but I'm also starving and feeling so ill and miserable.

    Aren't we just a pathetic lot here in Fiji!


    Wannabe PM Baibutako and iAG Aiynazi combined, could never be half the man that you are, SIR.


    Now where the hell is China and Russia when we needed them most? *&^$&!@)^$)(^%&@!#^%!!!

  10. Mr Key is a man of susbstance and talk only on real issues not on personal level.He takes all critisism level against him or his govt.in a professional and diplomatic manner coz he knows that the world is watching. But the new King of Warwar of Vanuatu will say to you "who said that, who said that" or will ask you back on the same question you put to him. What a shame. You see what Key said he thinks of the people of Fiji.You kow why KAKASE is now regarded as an offence in Fiji, just because he takes everythings personally. If someone is caught doing a KAKASE on him, that,s incite or whatever. Now he knows that Key & Gillard does not think the way he thinks, they will always be there in time of need unlike their new friends Russia, China,Indonesia etc. they make friends coupled with their own interest. Thank you New Zealand.

  11. Ditto Aus.

    "we love u too - especialy your footballers".

    AUS has never had a problem with the Fiji People - only problem its ever had has been with the murderous - incompetent & corrupt military regime currently leading it. Such is the paronoia of those in power in Suva - people who fully well know that all it would have taken for an immediate relief response was one simple humanitarian phone call.
    Such is life.

  13. John ,I protest the use of my Tax money on these idiots. Don't give any money, just send the helicopters and tents to them. That would be a better tax dollar spent. Even the red cross is a bunch of crooks. Just look at their former director Alison Cupit's abuse of red cross funds.
    DON'T SEND ANY MONEY TO FIJI. !!!!

  19. This is why we badly need a legitimate government. One that has honour and respect and not too proud to ask for assistance from neighbours in our times of crisis.
    Can't take money from NZ when it is offered but happy to go around taking money from smaller countries that can ill afford it like Vanuatu and Nauru.

  36. "Calls for better management
    Tuesday, April 03, 2012

    THERE is an urgent need to better manage evacuation centres, says Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki.

    Speaking to heads of government departments at an emergency operations centre briefing in Lautoka yesterday, Cdr Cawaki said a number of issues raised at the forum over the past three days had to be immediately addressed because of the fact that evacuation centres are already overcrowded and numbers are continuing to rise.

    "We will deploy teams out to address the most critical issues like health, social and education. We will also be monitoring numbers due to the fact that overcrowding is also a serious issue," he said.

    Despite the growing numbers, Cdr Cawaki said it was better for government to have people at evacuation centres rather than scattered across the various localities. "It is easier for us to manage because they're all in one place rather than teams having to be sent out to individual homes," he explained.

    Cdr Cawaki said teams sent out to evacuation centres across the division would also be assessing situations where evacuees may have damaged or misused school property"

    THESE GUYS ARE NOT PROACTIVE - THEY ARE ALL REACTIVE - WHEN RAIN FALLS, THEN THEY LOOK/ASK FOR UMBRELLA.

    WHAT A WASTE!!

  37. Did anyone listen last night to the Fiji Consular General, Sydney (Mrs Ravuso) updating ABC news on the Fiji situation.

    Gosh! she was really praising the efforts of the Fiji Military, Police and Prisons Department...not a single mention of Red Cross..I wonder why?..maybe FICAC should investigate how she was selected for the job..always floating around in PSC, and being a libility to the tax payer of Fiji...just like her husband.

    KILA VATA TAXI RE!
