The European Union (EU) has extended all its development assistance sanctions on Fiji by another six months until October 2010, local media reported Friday.

This is the second time this has been done by the EU.

The EU said in a statement that "it has decided to extend the existing appropriate measures for Fiji n order to create a window of opportunity for new consultations."

A letter to this effect has been sent to Fiji President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, the Fiji Television reported on Friday.
