Fiji's interim Attorney-General says the cancellation of the 2009 sugar allocation for Fiji by the European Commission is not viewed as meaning a closing of all doors.
More than $US32 million is involved.
In a statement, the commission said on Monday it cancelled the funding in the absence of any indication that a legitimate government will be in place in 2009.
In response, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum said the cancellation was of course the commission's prerogative.
He said Fiji views the European Commission as a committed development partner because it has been engaging and open-minded. He said Fiji wishes to continue to engage with the commission
