The Prime Minister of Solomon Islands, Derek Sikua, says he will keep up dialogue with Fiji, and encourage it to move towards holding elections.
His New Zealand counterpart, John Key, made a whistlestop tour through the Solomons' capital, Honiara, on his way back from a Pacific Islands Forum meeting in Papua New Guinea.
There, leaders gave Fiji until the May the 1st to name a date for elections, or face partial suspension from the forum.
Dr Sikua says it was a consensus decision and one which Solomon Islands supports.
But he says he will continue to talk to Fiji's interim leader, Frank Bainimarama.
"I will try to as a neighbour and as a member of a MSG country, I will continue to encourage him to implement the communiqué that has been agreed on by all Forum leaders."
