MELBOURNE (Radio Australia/Pacific Media Watch): The Secretariat of the Pacific Community has denied it is planning to relocate its regional office to Vanuatu, because of the difficulties securing Fijian visas for its staff.

Several media reports quoted the Director-General of the SPC, Dr Jimmy Rodgers, saying that if the political situation in Fiji didn't improve by the end of the year, the team would move to Vanuatu's capital, Port Vila.

Dr Rodgers reportedly made the comment to Vanuatu's Foreign Minister, Joe Natuman, during the signing of an agreement to set up the SPC office in Port Vila.
