EU urges Fiji dialogue, offers to lift sanctions

The European Union is eager to meet the Fijian Government for further talks on development.

The new head for the EU Delegation to Fiji and the Pacific, based in Suva, Ambassador Doctor Abdoul Aziz Mbaye told the Fiji Sun in an interview that they were prepared to lift all sanctions against Fiji as long as both parties engaged in dialogue to provide concrete delivery.

Dr Mbaye said their stance on Fiji is governed by the Cotonou Protocol and they adhered to all that had been previously decided upon by all signatories.

"We are prepared to engage on the basis of Article 96 of the Cotonou agreement if the Fijian Government thinks they are ready enough to engage with us. We are looking at all possibilities to do just that," Dr Mbaye said.

Dr Mbaye presented his credentials to the President on Thursday and has taken up the office as the head of delegation a week ago.
