As the Engaging with the Pacific meeting chaired by Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama gets underway in Nadi today, there are indications that US Secretary for State, Hillary Clinton and her husband and former US President, Bill Clinton are expected to attend the Pacific Island Forum in Cook Islands next week.
Fiji’s suspension is definitely up for discussion whether it is time to allow Fiji back into the fold.
Reports have emerged that diplomatic sources say Hillary Clinton wants the forum to readmit Fiji.
She has also urged Australia and New Zealand to end its isolation of Fiji, suggesting it is giving too much opening for Chinese moves in the region.
If Clinton arrives she will lead the highest powered and largest US delegation ever to the forum.
The forum will be held from the 27th to the 31st of this month in Rarotonga.
