New Zealand government efforts to suspend Fiji from the Commonwealth have been revealed in the latest batch of the WikiLeaks release.
The information is disclosed in a cable from the US Embassy in London dated June 2009 which gives briefings on activities by the Commonwealth Secretariat.
The cable says New Zealand was pushing hard for Fiji to be suspended from the Commonwealth.
The information is of little surprise, since both New Zealand and Australia have openly criticised Frank Bainimarama for carrying out the 2006 coup.
Both countries have also continued to condemn the changes made by the military government since then, including the abolition of the Constitution and Bainimarama's refusal to hold elections until 2014.
