Wellington wants to help process in Fiji- McCully

New Zealand's Foreign Minister said he's keeping an open mind about sanctions on Fiji, after the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama announced plans to consult the public on a new constitution.

New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully said Wellington wants to help the process in Fiji.

Commodore Bainimarama said a new constitution will be ready by February next year.

Murray McCully said Wellington sees the consultation as a step in the right direction for Fiji and it is keeping an open mind about post coup sanctions.

Australia's incoming Foreign Minister, Bob Carr, held informal talks with McCully on Friday in Auckland, which included the political situation in Fiji.

He rejected media claims that he is planning to soften Australia's stance against Fiji, saying it was “premature”.
