Discussions were on bilateral and mutual relevance.

The Republic of Fiji Mili­tary Forces Deputy Com­mander, Brigadier-Gen­eral Mohammed Aziz, met Sri Lankan Secretary to the Min­istry of Defence, Karunasena Hettiarachchi, last week in Sri Lanka.

Brigadier-General Aziz was accompanied by RFMF’s Land Force Commander, Colonel Sap­enafa Motufaga, Captain (Navy) John Fox and Captain Mesake Daunitoko. Discussions focused on bilateral and mutual rele­vance.

In August last year, Major-General Aruna Perera – a highly decorated Sri Lankan officer – had met with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in Suva. Major General Perera had said Sri Lanka would offer to assist the RFMF.

Sri Lanka has a highly trained and experienced military with a record of success in counter terrorism. Mementos were also exchanged between Secretary Hettiarachchi and Brigadier-General Aziz to mark the occa­sion.
