US Ambassador to Fiji Judith Cefkin

The US Ambassador to Fiji Judith Cefkin says ‘Fiji has shown real leadership’ in being selected to preside over COP23.

“We are happy to see them stepping forward. We are always happy that US leaders are welcome in Fiji,” Ms Cefkin said.

Yesterday on the sidelines of a meeting, Ms Cefkin discussed with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama on issues pertaining to what would happen in the lead-up to President-elect Donald Trump’s policies.

She said: “What I did tell the Prime Minister was that President-elect Trump is in the process of forming his policy team, choosing his Cabinet and once that is done, they will start to look at detail of many issues.

“I would caution against pre-judging at this point what the policies would be when President Trump takes office.

“Of course there will be many, many voices giving him advice and he’ll have to take all that advice onboard and decide ultimately what policies are the right policies for the United States.

“We will of course be informing him and the Government about the views here in the Pacific and we will be part of that discussion going forward.”
