The UN fact-finding mission to Fiji has ended its consultations in Suva and is preparing recommendations after a six-day visit to assess the nation's situation following last year's coup.

The mission was dispatched in response to the Security Council's call for a peaceful resolution to the situation in Fiji and the restoration of democracy in the country.

The mission had a wide range of discussions, on elections, human rights, the rule of law and related issues pertaining to the restoration of democracy, peace and stability.

In a statement it says it will submit its confidential recommendations to the Secretary General upon its return to New York, although the report will not be made public.
