The Prime Minister of Samoa has vigourously attacked Fiji's interim government, saying there is no chance a general election will go ahead in Fiji in 2014.

Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi has described the military regime's promises of an election in two years time as a pipe dream.

He says the regime's empty promises create deception and false hope among Fiji citizens and the international community.

He also warns that Fiji could soon experience the Pacific version of the Arab Spring, saying governments cannot suppress people indefinitely.
