Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Namita Khatri, is returning home.

Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Robin Nair, confirmed reports from India that Ms Khatri, who was appointed recently, was coming home.

But he declined to comment further, saying any statement on the issue, would come from the Department of Information.

It is understood that the statement would explain the reasons for her return home. It is speculated that she could be taking up a new role.

Prior to her appointment Ms Khatri served as Deputy Permanent Representative in Fiji’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations in Geneva. She began her diplomatic career as second secretary to Fiji’s Mission to the European Communities and Permanent Representative to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Belgium in 2006 where she was responsible for providing advice on trade matters in line with Fiji’s development interests.

She was then seconded to serve as Deputy Head of the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group Mission in Geneva in 2010.

She also served as First Secretary in Fiji’s Permanent Mission to the UN in 2012 before being appointed as Deputy Permanent Representative in 2014.
