China & Iran in Bag - Now Tis North Korea Next for Bainimarama's Regime!

This post below on Coup 4.5 paints a sad story for Fiji as it cuddles up to those nations such as China, North Korea and Iran, universally despised for flouting freedom and human rights! Yet for the current Bainimarama regime it has become the "In Thing" as it scraps at the bottom of the diplomatic barrel in search of international friends following ostracism by regional ones. Why then are Australia and New Zealand softening their stance against Fiji when nothing significant has really happened to assuage those on the ground of their lost freedom and right to determine their own government and not being dictated to by one who never had their mandate?

Bainimarama grabs western aid but keeps looking North

While Australia and New Zealand congratulate themselves on a renewed and 'warm' relationship with Fiji, the regime is cosying up to two of the Western world's biggest enemies - Iran and North Korea.

The bilateral relations agreement with Iran was  signed yesterday by the Iranian Foreign Minister, Ali Akbar Salehi, and Fiji's foreign minister, Inoke Kubuabola in Tehran where Kubuabola is attending a summit meeting of the organisation, Non-Aligned Movement, otherwise known as NAM.

Fiji has also door knocked North Korea although the news has been kept hush hush.

Insiders say Fiji's ambassador to China and the illegal prime minister's trusted ally, Esala Teleni, presented his credentials to North Korea this week and is now ambassador to both countries.

But ironically, while the regime is aligning itself with dangerous, toxic countries, regional superpowers New Zealand and Australia and super power America are patting themselves on the back for newfound warm fuzzies with Suva.

The trio are preparing to talk up Fiji at the Pacific Island post-forum dialogue, unaware that Bainimarama has been keeping his options open by schmoozing countries shunned by America because of their covert nuclear power programmes and abuse of human rights.

Bainimarama at the same time is grabbing all the aid he can from the US, Australia, New Zealand and the European Union!

From reports sighted by Coupfourpointfive, New Zealand's Foreign Minister Murray McCully isn't impressed with Fiji's ties with Iran just when he and co have 'softened' towards Fiji.

McCully is quoted as saying: "I'm not sure it's the smartest timing I've ever seen but that's a decision that others have to make." 

It would be our guess that he doesn't know about North Korea.
