Kubuabola to meet Aussie and NZ counterparts
July 28, 2012 5:02 am
A trilateral meeting between the foreign ministers for Fiji, New Zealand and Australia is expected to be held on Monday.
Fiji’s Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola departs this weekend for Sydney Australia, where he will meet with his Australian and New Zealand counterparts, Senator Bob Carr and Murray McCully.
The trilateral meeting follows the visit to Fiji in early May of the Pacific Island Forum’s Ministerial Contact Group(MCG) and McCully’s visit less than a week ago.
Kubuabola has welcomed the opportunity to continue the constructive dialogue process with Fiji’s nearest developed neighbours.
He has expressed renewed optimism that continual engagement and constructive dialogue would create an enabling platform towards restoration of cordial relations with the three governments.
The last dedicated trilateral meeting of the Foreign Ministers took place in February 2010 in Canberra, Australia.
