What is Fiji's stance on human rights in Pakistan?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Fiji is a South Pacific island nation, formerly under British control and very important in the South Pacific economy.

Fiji's specific stance on human-rights issues in Pakistan is undefined; they have participated in relief efforts in Pakistan during the Kashmir earthquake, and continue current diplomatic relations, but otherwise seem to have little interaction on the world stage. I cannot find any explicit denunciation from Fiji of Pakistani human-rights violations online, either from their own website or from the United Nations.

Interestingly, Fiji itself is under investigation by the U.S. State Department and the United Nations for various issues, including censorship, racial division, women's rights violations, and failure to provide its own citizens with electoral choice.
