Three of Fiji’s ambassadors including a current one were inducted as Officers of the Order of Fiji by the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau on Tuesday.

Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Peter Thomson and former ambassadors Kaliopate Tavola and Robin Yarrow were awarded for their contributions to humanity and to Fiji.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Amena Yauvoli said the ministry was proud of the contributions made by Mr Thomson and the two former ambassadors.

He said the three ambassadors were instrumental in flying Fiji’s flag when representing the country in the global fora.

Mr Thomson said receiving the award was a great honour and he dedicated it to all Fiji’s hardworking diplomats in Suva and overseas.

He said it was also a tribute to the ministry given that the three ambassadors were recipients of the Officers of the Order of Fiji.

They were among the 18 Fijian citizens who were honoured for their contributions to society.
