Big Golan Welcome From Troops

The President, Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote, and wife Sarote were accorded a full traditional welcome ceremony at the Fijian base in the Golan Heights.

Mr Konrote expressed his gratitude for the welcome and praised the peacekeepers for their  role in trying to preserve the peace.

The visit was part of a Middle East tour by the Commander in Chief of our armed forces.

He stopped over in Baghdad, Iraq, to visit our peacekeepers there. Before that he visited southern Lebanon.

Now he has visited Fijian peacekeepers in the Golan Heights between Syria and Israel serving with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF),

The next stop is likely to be Sinai where we have troops stationed with the Multinational Force Observers.
