Fiji’s High Commissioner to PNG and non-resident High Commissioner to Vanuatu Esala Teleni has presented his credentials to the President of Vanuatu His Excellency Womtelo Rev. Baldwin Londsdale.
Teleni commended the steadfastness, calmness, solidarity and spirit of confidence displayed by Vanuatu and its people during and after cyclone Pam.
He thanked the Vanuatu Government for its understanding and support during Fiji’s transition to democratic rule.
Rev Londsdale thanked the Fijian Government for the support and assistance rendered to the people of Vanuatu.
He says the relations between the two countries dates far back when people from Vanuatu were brought to work in Fiji’s sugar cane plantations as well as those Vanuatu nationals who attended schools in Fiji.
The two also talked about regional peace and security and believes that as a region we need to provide a united front to bring security issues to the attention of global powers.
High Commissioner Teleni later reviewed a guard of honour.
