The Editor in Chief of the Samoa Observer says Fiji's interim Prime Minister is not taking the bait from Samoa's Prime Minister.

The comments come as Tuila'epa Sailele Malielegaoi refused Fiji's invitation to the Melanesian Spearhead Group meeting in Fiji next week.

Tuilaepa stated that as a member of the Pacific Islands Forum he does not think it is right to accept Fiji's invitation

Radio Fiji reports Savea Sano Malifa as saying that Commodore Frank Bainimarama is taking no notice of what he calls Tuilaepa Sailele's tricks.

Malifa says Tuilaepa is trying to steal the limelight from Commodore Bainimarama.
