Six Fijian students will graduate from the Tbilisi State Medical University in Georgia in March, 2019.

The final year students were among nine Fijian students, who met and had dinner with the Minister for Defence and Na­tional Security Ratu Inoke Kubuabola on Tuesday night in Tbi­lisi.

They are Katrina Shute, Rodnishwar Prasad, Nigel Etuate Christopher, Shyala Elishiya Chand, Mele Esther Pasikali and Adi Wainise Moceitai.

Three of the nine students are in their second year of study­ing medicine. They are on Georgian scholarships, which were secured by Ratu Inoke in 2012 when he was still the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation.

Ratu Inoke arrived in Georgia on September 23, with his del­egation from the Ministry of Defence and Fiji Police Force for a ministerial bilateral visit.

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

Georgia’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Internal Af­fairs Giorgi Gakharia is hosting the Fijian delegation from Sep­tember 23 to 28.

The official programme started on Monday when Ratu Inoke and the Fijian delegation met with the host country’s Minister for Defence, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Speaker of Parliament and Head of Security Services.

They also visited other significant places around Georgia in­cluding the State Military Scientific technical centre.

The Fijian delegation will return on September 29.
