BILATERAL discussions on important issues of mutual significance that will foster further economic, trade and international relations between Fiji and Timor Leste have taken place.

This after Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Minister Ra­tu Inoke Kubuabola met with Dr Jose Luis Guterres, Senior Minist­er and Foreign Affairs Mi­nister for the Democratic Republic of Timor Leste.

Ratu Inoke informed Dr Guterres of the steps which Fiji had undertaken to ensure the restoration of democracy in Fiji.

He also highlighted that Fiji had successfully completed its constitutional consultation process and a first draft of the constitution had been submitted to the President. He further clarified the draft would be amended to ensure a more balanced outcome was obtained. In other words the new constitution will ensure sustainable democracy for all Fijians.

A final document is expected to be ready by March 2013.
