Mosese Tikoitoga has been appointed as the new Ambassador Designate to Ethiopia, a strategic move by Government recognising the African Union’s headquarters in Addis Ababa, the country’capital.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said the relocation also came alongside an expanded mission in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“It fits in with the overall strategy,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“We must continue to draw alliances with the European Union, India and UAE to take advantage of their respective lead roles in different areas that will be of strategic importance to us.

“We of course need to maintain our relationships with other key partners such as China.

“Our art of diplomacy and indeed foreign policy must not mean that we are too reliant on any one or two countries, always.”
