In 2006, France condemned the December 5th coup and immediately suspended military cooperation and training of senior officials, including diplomats. Nevertheless, its cooperation has been maintained in culture, science, and technology (especially for public health and humanitarian aid). Fijian projects are still eligible for the French Fund for Cooperation in the Pacific, in conjunction with the three French Pacific collectivities.
Locally, France and Great Britain are the only EU Member States to have an embassy. They conduct, alongside the European Union Delegate, European cooperation meetings.
