Fiji’s Minister of Defence and National Security Ratu In­oke Kubuabola arrived in Georgia along with his delegation for a ministerial bilateral visit this week.

According to a Government state­ment, the visit culminates the signing of a security memoran­dum of understanding between Fiji and Georgia.

The Georgia Minister for Inter­nal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia is hosting the Fijian delegation from September 23 to September 28.

“Fiji has long standing relations with Georgia in the area of medi­cal co-operation. Currently, there are nine Fijian medical students studying in Georgia,” the state­ment read.

Ratu Inoke had earlier met with the Foreign Minister of Georgia, Dr Maia Panjikidze in 2013 to dis­cuss ways and means of intensi­fying relations between the two countries, given the growing de­velopments in their relations in the recent past.

Fiji and Georgia formally estab­lished diplomatic relations on March 29, 2010.

Since then, Fiji has continued to receive delegations from Georgia.

In November 2011, Georgia’s Min­ister for Foreign Affairs, Grigol Va­shadze arrived with his delegation.

The official programme started yesterday when Ratu Inoke and the Fijian delegation will meet with Georgia’s Minister for De­fence, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Speaker of Parliament and Head of Security Services.

This is apart from visits to other significant places around Georgia including the State Military Scien­tific technical centre.

Ratu Inoke is accompanied by senior officials from the Minis­try of Defence and the Fiji Police Force.
