Australia and NZ want to dominate Pacific: Fiji PM

Radio Fiji News - 8 June 2010

Fiji’s illegal Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says Australia and New Zealand want to dominate the Pacific region.

He says this is evident from their comments following the recent Forum ministerial Contact Group meeting in Auckland.

Bainimarama says Fiji will not bow down to pressures from the two countries.

“Australia and New Zealand have always tried to dominate the Pacific region. Unfortunately Fiji will not tow the line but will act independently as a sovereign country for its national interest.

In this situation, they continue to impose a concept of democracy to resolve its issues. Let me remind them that Fiji will seek its own path to a true democratic nation, with or without their participation.”

They choose not to understand Fiji: PM

Radio Fiji News - 8 June 2010
Illegal Fiji Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says Australia and New Zealand are choosing not to understand the situation in Fiji.

He says recent comments by the two countries that the situation in Fiji is worsening - shows they do not recognize Government’s work.

“They still cannot and do not want to understand the situation in Fiji and in doing that Australia and New Zealand have failed to understand and recognize my Government’s efforts in creating a country that is non-racial, culturally vibrant and united, well governed, fully democratic nation that seeks progress and prosperity through merit based equality, opportunity and peace. That is what we been telling these people for the last four years.”

Bainimarama adds Fiji will move ahead with or without Australia and New Zealand’s support.

  • After more then 3 years it has still not register with ratu suguraki that all the other Pacific Nation have their own sovereignty elected by their own people. They are also still respected members of the PIF which includes NZ & Aust. Ratu suguraki is trying to dominate the MSG in order to gain some recognition within the region. Unfortunately, he is besotted with his own delusion that he finds it difficult to listen or reason with anyone who disagrees with him. No amount of Kava will address his issues, he will have to chew some bettle-nut as well to address his delusions.
  • When you listen to Bainimarama's reasons for his illegal takeover, it is almost unbelievable that he could say all these thinking that it is being done legaly. He has forgotten that he is speaking to two countries who have democratically elected leaders and have sound political leaders who work very hard to make sure their people remain the priority of their goals.
  • Michael Field's report on unqualified Chinese coming to Fiji to do infrastucture development work with all their bad reputation shows disregard for the peoples' welfare. If the Chinese people will not employ these companies in China, but would let Fiji make use of their unprofessional and underqualified workers shows that Suguraki doesn't care about the people but his reputation amongst the locals. That has to be seen as growing with all developments and assistance he provides.
