John Key greeted by Fiji PM upon arriving in the country

5:14 pm on 9 June 2016

Prime Minister John Key has arrived in Fiji for a two-day visit.

He was met at the airport by Prime Minister of Fiji Frank Bainimarama.

Mr Key's official visit to Fiji is the first by a New Zealand prime minister since Mr Bainimarama overthrew the Fijian Government in a military coup in 2006.

Two years ago, Mr Bainimarama became Fiji's democratically elected prime minister but his government's treatment of opposition politicians and the media remains controversial.
