There is no confirmation that Fiji will support West Papua joining the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG), said Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola.

The question of Fiji’s support of the application of West Papua to join the Melanesian Spearhead Group was raised by Opposition member, Ratu Isoa Tikoca yesterday.

“A meeting will be in July at Honiara and during this meeting the application will be taken up by senior officials of the MSG,” Ratu Inoke said.

However, he clarified that he had not seen any application from West Papua to join the MSG.

Ratu Inoke said he would also table a report which came out of the MSG Foreign Ministers visit to West Papua late last year.
