Differences aside Bainimarama is confident of more corporation with Morrison.
“Members of any family are entitled to their differences. No one can expect our differences can be resolved quickly or easily but we must never falter in forging common grounds and a common ground is what I intend to seek during our discussion on the issues that impact the lives of Fijians, Australian and lives of many Pacific people.”
