The Prime Minister says it is Pacific Forum business, not an alleged assassination plot, that has his Foreign Minister in Fiji.
Murray McCully's in Fiji just days after the police and SIS interviewed Fijians living in Auckland over an alleged plot to kill Commodore Frank Bainimarama.
John Key says there's nothing you can read into the timing of Mr McCully's visit.
"He's in Fiji because he's the chair of the ministerial contact group, I think there's a ministerial contact group meeting later in the week. We continue to engage with Fiji, New Zealand's always said that we want to help that country back to the restoration of democracy."
Mr Key doesn't think it's likely Mr McCully will brief Fijian authorities on the operation that occurred here this week.
