Forum ministers in talks with Fiji interim leadership

1:41 pm on 15 July 2008

The Forum Ministerial Contact Group has begun a series of meetings with Fiji's interim government.

The ministers have met the interim foreign minister, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, at Government Buildings this morning.

Ratu Epeli then escorted them to the Cabinet meeting and it is believed they met privately with the interim prime minister.

The ministers have been seeking a further Fiji commitment to hold election by March.
