Australia cuts funding for Fiji's involvement in RAMSI

11:24 am on 28 December 2006

The Australian government has decided to suspend all funding for Fiji's military involvement in the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands.

The decision to cut funding was made in response to the recent military coup in Fiji.

The move means Fiji will not be able to take the lead role in the mission next year, as it was scheduled to under a rotation system.
