The Minister for Defence and National Security Ratu Inoke Kubuabola met with the Secretary General (SG) of the United Nation, Antonio Guterres yesterday.

Ratu Inoke tweeted from New York that in this meeting they discussed Fiji’s Peacekeeping role in the Middle East.

According to UN News Mr Guterres, the ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations, took office on January 1, 2017.

Having witnessed the suffering of the most vulnerable people on earth, in refugee camps and in war zones, the Secretary-General is determined to make human dignity the core of his work, and to serve as a peace broker, a bridge-builder and a promoter of reform and innovation.

Prior to his appointment as Secretary-General, Mr Guterres served as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees from June 2005 to December 2015,  heading one of the world’s foremost humanitarian organizations during some of the most serious displacement crises in decades.

The conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and the crises in South Sudan, the Central African Republic and Yemen, led to a huge rise in UNHCR’s activities as the number of people displaced by conflict and persecution rose from 38 million in 2005 to over 60 million in 2015.
