When asked if the British Government was doing to do anything about Fiji, the PMOS responded by saying that as with all coups, we condemned it. We were stopping our military help to Fiji, and we were expressing our views to those who had taken control in Fiji.

Asked if we had troops there, the PMOS said that it was more about military assistance. We were suspending immediately bilateral and military assistance to Fiji, and were considering further measures with our international and Commonwealth partners. We would urge all parties to recognise the sovereign authority of the elected Government. The PMOS added that we were also in close touch with the Australians, who had naval vessels off Fiji, as well as in close touch with New Zealand and France.
