Fiji expels NZ High Commissioner

The New Zealand High Commissioner to Fiji, Michael Green, has been declared persona non grata, Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters has just confirmed. reports New Zealand Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Select Committee went into a special closed session to hear the news from Peters, who is now briefing reporters.

Peters says the New Zealand Government deplores this action and expelling diplomats is not the way for neighbours to conduct their relationship.

He says there will undoubtedly be consequences for Fiji, as this action will be viewed very seriously not only by New Zealand, but by Fiji’s other international partners including Pacific Island nations, Australia, the United States, and the European Union."
