Netanyahu Praises Fiji's Peacekeeping Contribution and Climate Advocacy During Jerusalem Meeting
Marking the end of an eventful tour of the Middle East, Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama met with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, in Jerusalem to discuss Fiji's outsized global leadership in preserving peace and protecting the climate.

Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked Bainimarama for the longstanding contribution that Fiji has made towards United Nations Peacekeeping in the region, and said that he looks forward to visiting Fiji in the future.

The two leaders discussed growing bilateral relations and the strengthening bond between Israel and Fiji, and Prime Minister Bainimarama thanked Israel for its support in its ongoing fight against climate change.

"Both terrorism and climate change are forces that no one nation can fight alone," said Bainimarama. "Israel and

Fiji proudly stand together in taking on these common enemies –– battles that are absolutely critical to preserving and protecting this beautiful planet that we have been blessed with."

PM shared warm wishes on behalf of all Fijians, who he says share a special bond with Israel because so many Fijian troops and their families have spent time in the country and share lasting memories and friendships with the Israeli people.

Several members of Public Accounts Committee of the Fijian Parliament visiting Wellington this week took advantage of a visit to the Wellington City Council’s Southern Landfill yesterday to glean a few ideas for waste management in Fiji. This included the Hon. Alexander O’Connor, Assistant Minister for Health, Ratu Suliano Matanitobua, Opposition parliamentarian and Ms. Priya Chand, Parliamentary Secretary who were accompanied by the Fiji High Commission New Zealand staff.

The Southern landfill is an impressive setup particularly as it focuses on recycling and minimising the damage to the environment at the landfill.

 

Other remarkable features of the landfill were its gas collection, electricity regeneration, green waste mulching and water table management. The Hon. O’Connor, an engineer by profession, was particularly impressed and intends to develop a few ideas for the Fijian Government to consider.

With Fiji’s growing diplomatic relations both regionally and internationally, the Pacific Island Countries continue to reachout to Fiji with the interest to strengthen their bilateral partnerships. This has been reflected through the recent engagements undertaken between the officials of the Fijian Government and that of the Cook Islands.

The Cook Islands Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Ms Tepaeru Herrmaan today paid a courtesy visit to the Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Major General (Ret’d) Ioane Naivalurua. The counterparts exchanged information on the ways to forge strengthened collaboration.

Mr. Naivalurua congratulated Ms. Herrman on her successful chairmanship of the Pacific Island Forum Officials Committee. Ms. Hermann’s year-long appointment ended with the Forum’s Budget and Work Program meeting at the Secretariat yesterday as she handed over the reins to the Federated States of Micronesia.

Ms Herrmaan noted Cook Islands interests in its relations with Fiji is broad, something that they would like to explore further. She also discussed the establishment of a diplomatic mission in Fiji. Mr Naivalurua welcomed the Cook Islands intention to establish a mission in Fiji and reassured Ms. Hermann of the Ministry’s commitment to facilitate the process. He further mentioned, the establishment of the mission will significantly serve to strengthen existing relations between the two countries.

The two officials also discussed initiatives around closer collaboration between executive management officials in the Pacific through an organized forum and the need for a platform to nurture the development of the young Pacific leaders.

In October earlier this year, through a formal letter, the Cook Islands Prime Minister Honourable Henry Puna congratulated and expressed gratitude to Hon. Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama for his inspiring leadership and accomplishments in championing the climate change issues at the global front.

Fiji established its official diplomatic relations with Cook Islands since 1998 and Fiji has maintained trading ties with the Cook Islands through the Pacific Islands Countries Trade Agreement (PICTA).
