Fiji's interim Attorney General says they do not view the cancellation of the 2009 sugar allocation for Fiji by the European Commission to mean a closing of all dooors.
The move will cost Fiji more than 32 million US dollars.
In a statement, the EC says it has taken the decision to cancel the allocation in the absence of any indication that a legitimate government will be in place in 2009.
But Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum in a statement said the cancellation by the European Commission is its prerogative.
He said Fiji views the Commission as a committed development partner because it has been engaging and open minded.
And he said Fiji wishes to continue to engage with the European Commission.
