July 30, 2015 12:58 am
The Fijian government has put its backing behind the government of India which is lobbying for a seat in the United Nations Security Council.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama made the announcement while officiating at a function in Suva this morning.
‘’India is the world’s biggest democracy and an emerging power that deserves a bigger role in global affairs – which is why Fiji intends to support India in its bid to become a Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council’’.
Relations between Fiji and India were solidified when current Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to Suva in November last year.
