After discussions with Rear Admiral Naupoto the two exchanged gifts.

The Commander of the FANC was ushered on a tour of the military installations around the Suva – Nasinu corridor as part of the visitation programme and he also paid his respects to our fallen in a laying of a wreath at our National War Memorial site in Veiuto.
