Fiji’s contribution to peacekeeping duties in Iraq has been commended by Iraq’s head of State following a meeting with our President in Iraq.

President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote paid a courtesy call to the President of Iraq Muhammad Fuad Masum in Baghdad.

The courtesy call by President Konrote was an opportunity to extend to the Iraqi President, the gratitude of the Fijian people for accommodating Fijian peacekeepers stationed in Iraq under the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).

President Masum said his government and the people of Iraq valued the work undertaken by the peacekeepers and highlighted the close working relations between Fijian peacekeepers and authorities and the people of Iraq.

The Iraqi President also congratulated Fiji for its recent gold medal win at the 2016 Rio Olympics and called for closer co-operation between the two nations.

The President is visiting Fijian peacekeeping troops based in various parts of the Middle East in his capacity as Commander in Chief of the Republic of Fiji’s Military Forces.
