Ratu Wiliame highlighted that Fiji is doing its part in relation to the international actions imposed on Russia.

He reminded the Ukrainian President that, other than voting in support of the United Nations General Assembly Resolutions calling for the immediate withdrawal of Russia from Ukraine, Fiji has also cooperated with the international community, particularly the United States of America, to seize a Russian superyacht linked to a sanctioned oligarch.

He says Fiji acknowledges the extensive global repercussions of the conflict, including its influence on the Pacific region.

Ratu Wiliame informed Zelenskyy he could continue to count on Fiji’s support.
