More military officers will be travelling to China to further their studies at China’s National Defence University.

This was confirmed by the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Commander, Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga, following his recent trip to China with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama last week.

As part of his trip, Brigadier-General Tikoitoga visited the university and commended them for their contribution to enhancing military skills of the RFMF officers.

“I also discussed with the university about the professional development of our officers, which will be a continuing programme. We have been doing that for the last eight years and we will continue to do that for the next eternity,” he said.

He said he also discussed further engagements with China’s People’s Liberation Army during the trip.

“I went and met my counterparts, the chief general staff of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). I thanked him for the support he’s been giving the RFMF in the professional developments of its officers and men over the eight years that we were in isolation from other western countries, China stood by us and I thank them for that,” Brigadier-General Tikoitoga said.

“We discussed further engagements and the help they can provide for us.”

At the university, Commander Tikoitoga also attended the graduation of Lieutenant-Colonel Pacolo Luveni and the late Colonel Amani Suliano.
