Prime Minister John Key said he has extended an invitation to Fiji prime minister Voreqe Bainimarama on a state visit to New Zealand.
Key told NZ-based Radio Tarana that Bainimarama is welcomed and hopes he accepts the offer.
“Well as I understand he is coming down here – so obviously he’ll be welcomed. We were there earlier in the year . There are always certain things to discuss between Fiji and New Zealand – so if he wants to accept the offer that we have put forward then he will be most welcomed.”
If Bainimarama accepts up the invite, it will be his first state visit to New Zealand.
