The Minister for Defence, National Security and Immigration Ratu Inoke Kubuabola has completed a three-day official visit to Australia with an appreciation of the defence relations re-established. There is potential for growth in defence co-operation between the two countries.

Ratu Inoke on the final day of his visit met with the director of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service, Nick Warner.

“The dialogue at the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was compelling where the importance of information sharing and analysis in peacekeeping missions is critical to address transnational crimes, terrorism, cyber security, drug smuggling and human trafficking,” Ratu Inoke said.

“The ASIS works closely with other members of the Australian Intelligence Community (AIC) to deliver whole-of-government outcomes.”

Ratu Inoke also met with Major-General Simone Wilkie at the Australian Defence Force.

“The UN Training provided at the Peacekeeping Operations Training Centre is impressive and one of the main tasks of the Australian Defence Force POTC is to ensure that peacekeeping and UN expertise is maintained in Defence,” Ratu Inoke said.

In Canberra, Ratu Inoke visited the Department of Veteran Affairs and met with Craig Orme the deputy president of the Repatriation Commission to discuss how to fulfil commitments to remember and honour those who served our nation.
