DIPLOMATIC relations between Fiji and Haiti are expected to boosted with the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Haiti's Permanent Representative of the UN Ambassador Jean Cazeau, and his Fiji counterpart Peter Thomson signed a joint communiqué this week.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, Haiti and Fiji formalised diplomatic relations at a ceremony at the Fiji Mission to the UN New York early this week.

The communiqué expressed the desire of the two countries to promote mutual understanding and strengthen ties of friendship and co-operation between their people.

The statement said the communiqué affirmed the relationship would be guided by the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations and other norms of international law, particularly those pertaining to the promotion of international peace and security, the respect for state sovereignty, equality among states, independence, territorial integrity, international treaties and non-interference in the internal affairs of states.

Following the ceremonies, ambassadors Cazeau and Thomson held talks on areas of common interest between their two countries, including the programs for Haiti's recovery from the devastating earthquake of 2010 and the steady progress of Fiji's roadmap towards sustainable democracy
