The President of Israel Reuven Rivlin conveyed his personal and the Government of Israel’s sincere gratitude towards Fiji’s peacekeepers.

In a telephone conversation with President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote, Mr Rivlin commended the Fijian soldiers for their professionalism and for their neutrality in contributing to peace in the Middle East.

Mr Rivlin asked President Konrote to convey Israel’s gratitude and best wishes to all of Fijian soldiers.

The telephone conversation between the two Heads of States was initiated by the President of Israel after an initial courtesy call on him by Mr Konrote had to be cancelled because of a delayed flight from Amman, Jordan on Tuesday.

The delayed flight was caused by massive fogging in Amman. Efforts to reschedule the courtesy call fell through, because of the tight schedules of both Presidents.

However, Mr Konrote was honoured to be able to speak with Mr Rivlin by phone. He also reassured Mr Rivlin of Fiji’s commitment to serve humanity through peacekeeping duties in countries that require such services.

Mr Konrote is on an official visit to Fiji’s peacekeeping troops in his capacity as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

He earlier met separately with the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Tammam Salam and the President of Iraq, Fuad Masum, who both not only commended Fiji’s soldiers but also assured Fiji that their respective nations will do all they can to ensure the safety of our soldiers.
