Prime Minister Voreqe Baini­marama and his delegation walked into a baptism ser­vice for a toddler, Cooper Brenton, onboard the HMAS Adelaide in Sydney yesterday.

It was a pleasant surprise for the parents and family of Brenton, said Mr Bainimarama.

He carried the child, hugged and kissed him.

In a tweet later he wrote: “Vina­ka Cooper Brenton for letting me crash your baptism onboard the HMAS Adelaide.

“Only together can Fiji and Aus­tralia work to secure a future for young Fijians and Aussies, like Cooper, where our planet’s health and our nation’s wealth aren’t mu­tually exclusive.”

Mr Bainimarama, Minister for Defence, National Security and For­eign Affairs Inia Seruiratu, Min­ister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Local Government, Housing and Community Development Premila Kumar, Fiji’s High Commissioner to Australia Luke Daunivalu and the rest of the Fijian delegation toured the HMAS Adelaide. They met senior Australian Defence Force officials for a briefing where Black Rock Military Camp in Nadi was discussed.

Later in the afternoon, they watched the Fiji Airways Fijian Drua draw with NSW Country Ea­gles 24-24. Today they travel to Can­berra where they will meet Austral­ian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
