EU development cooperation with Fiji Islands

The Council of Minsters this week pushed back the resumption of full development cooperation with the Republic of the Fiji Islands until 30 September 2012, pending the implementation of concrete steps towards new elections as well as the respect of human rights and the rule of law (13845/11). The measures were first imposed on 1 October 2007 in the wake of the military takeover in Fiji in 2006.
