Marking the end of an eventful tour of the Mid­dle East, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama met with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Ne­tanyahu, in Jerusalem to discuss Fiji’s outsized global leadership in preserving peace and protecting climate.

Mr Netanyahu thanked Mr Baini­marama for the longstanding contribution that Fiji has made towards United Nations Peacekeep­ing in the region and said that he looks forward to visiting Fiji in the future.

The two leaders discussed grow­ing bilateral relations and the strengthening bond between Israel and Fiji. Mr Bainimarama thanked Israel for its support in its ongoing fight against climate change.

“Both terrorism and climate change are forces that no one na­tion can fight alone,” Mr Bainima­rama said. “Israel and Fiji proudly stand together in taking on these common enemies –– battles that are absolutely critical to preserving and protecting this beautiful planet that we have been blessed with.”

Mr Bainimarama shared warm wishes on behalf of all Fijians, who he said share a special bond with Is­rael because so many Fijian troops and their families have spent time in the country and share lasting memories and friendships with the Israeli people.
