Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has called on India’s support to support Fiji and the Pacific at this year’s climate change talks in Paris, France.
The Prime Minister highlighted this in a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi as he congratulated the Prime Minister on India’s 69th Independence anniversary.
Bainimarama also highlighted that India being the world’s biggest democratic country with increasing influence in global affairs, Fiji looks to India for leadership on the greatest issue of this time.
As he paid tribute to the historic relations shared between the two countries, Bainimarama pointed to areas that have the potential to boost and strengthen the Fiji-India ties.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister will meet Pacific leaders at the Forum on India-Pacific Islands Cooperation in Jaipur next week where he is expected to raise these issues personally with Prime Minister Modi.
