RSQLite ".import"

I would like to import a (text) file into sqlite. The sqlite command I'm trying to execute is

 .import fixed_width_file.txt fixed_width_table

but I receive

> dbExecute(database_connection, ".import fixed_width_file.txt fixed_width_table")
Error: near ".": syntax error

What am I doing wrong?
