Fiji interim Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama says his country should not listen to Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's calls for the United Nations to stop considering Fijians for UN peacekeeping missions.
Fiji Broadcasting Corporation reports Commodore Bainimarama says Mr Rudd is not the UN.
The Fijian leader said he should not be listened to until the organisation itself comes out with a statement along the same lines.
He says it will be up to the UN to decide what action to take.
Mr Rudd said earlier this week that Fiji would no longer be considered for United Nations peacekeeping duties.
