The missions of the four Melanesian member states of the United Nations held a joint reception in New York this week to share with other UN member states the outcome of the MSG Summit in Fiji.
Fiji Ambassador in New York Peter Thomson said the joint reception had been organised in order to inform UN member states about the MSG and about outcomes of the Fiji Summit.
He said that the MSG was a regional group that aimed at progress in the international community and for that reason embraced transparency. Leaders from Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Fiji, and the FLNKS of New Caledonia agreed to take up to the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders and the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting that there is a need to remain engaged with Fiji. The MSG leaders said this should be done in the effort to implement the Strategic Framework for Change and the Roadmap to return Fiji to genuinely democratic elections in September 2014.
