PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will take part in the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
He told Radio Tarana that Fiji's global standing had never been what it was now and every Fijian must be proud.
Commodore Bainimarama said he had a good story to tell the leaders present at the assembly on the progress Fiji had made so far.
"I don't get any trouble when I go to UN, in fact the opposite. People come up to me and say good on you," Commodore Bainimarama told the New Zealand-based news agency.
"A lot of countries understand and appreciate what Fiji is trying to do and why wouldn't they?
"Changing the traditionally-based system that discriminated a lot of people into genuine democracy is a noble thing. They also appreciate our contribution to the UN peacekeeping."
He said the international community had welcomed the 2013 Constitution saying it was the way forward.
Information permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns said an official statement would be released tomorrow.
The meeting in New York opened yesterday and will end on October 4.
