The visit to Blackrock has capped off an eventful week of defense cooperation between Fiji and New Zealand.
In addition, the High Commissioner revealed that the New Zealand government has a legal team assisting the RFMF lawyers with a review of Fiji’s military justice system.
The annual high-level bilateral defense talks ended with a seminar on contemporary peacekeeping operations.
Brilliant day to accompany NZ High Commissioner Johnathan Curr to BlackRock Camp for his inaugural visit. Minister Seruiratu visited as well.
