Fiji leader urged to join summit

Australia and New Zealand yesterday urged Fiji's military leader, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, to attend a regional summit that will decide whether Fiji should be suspended from the Pacific Islands Forum. Commodore Bainimarama had said he would not go to the January 27 meeting in Papua New Guinea because he had to oversee relief work at home after deadly floods. The meeting will discuss his failure to hold fresh elections by March.
