What They're Saying

"Entry to another country is a privilege, and all countries retain the right to exclude individuals in accordance with their immigration policy."

-- New Zealand Foreign Minister Winston Peters, who called "unjust" FIFA's decision to force the postponement of New Zealand's World Cup qualifying game against Fiji because New Zealand did not grant an entry visa to FIFA goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau. New Zealand denied the visa citing travel sanctions imposed after last December's military coup in Fiji, claiming Tamanisau's father-in-law was in the armed forces. The Fiji federation said Tamanisau is not married. (New Zealand Herald)
