Fiji became a stronger and more independent nation after its suspension from the Pacific Islands Forum in 2009, says Minister of Foreign Affairs Ratu Inoke Kubuabola.

Speaking at the welcome reception for the Forum ministerial contact group last night at Borron House in Suva, Kubuabola said Fiji has friends who have since shown great support.

He said this was only possible through the government's Look-North Policy.

He told the members they will get first-hand information on the progress to the 2014 election.

The members of the Forum group are Senator Bob Carr, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Australia, Murray McCully, Minister of Foreign Affairs of New Zealand, Ano Pala, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Trade & Immigration of Papua New Guinea, Fiame Naomi Mata’afa, Minister of Justice of Samoa, Apisai Ielemia, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Trade, Tourism, Environment and Labour of Tuvalu, and Alfred Carlot, Minister for Foreign Affairs & External Trade of Vanuatu.
