Fiji’s Prime Minister and current Melanesian Spearhead Group chair Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says regional co-operation and integration does not mean that we must relinquish our national sovereignty.

Bainimarama made the remarks while closing the second Special Summit for the MSG Leaders in Nadi yesterday.

He said that phrases such as “deepening of co-operation” and “enhancing regional integration” to be more than nice sound bites for the MSG countries.

“Do not turn our backs on the situations, circumstances and concerns that are unique to our own countries,” he told participants.

Bainimarama said the MSG should not only expand its opportunities and influence within the MSG bloc but also the international community and improve the livelihood of the people at home.
