On 31 October 2014, Australia lifted sanctions it had imposed against Fiji in the wake of its 2006 coup led by Frank Bainimarama. The sanctions had included travel bans and restrictions on the export and supply of arms and weapons.

The lifting of the sanctions took place following elections deemed credible by international observers, and by which Mr Bainimarama and his party, FijiFirst Party, secured a majority in the Fiji parliament.

The US also lifted restrictions it had imposed on US government financial assistance to the Fijian government and stated that it was considering resuming cooperation with the Fijian military.
