FIJI'S peacekeepers continue to win accolades from their superiors for their ability in volatile situations around the world.
The latest commendations for our soldiers came from Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) deputy director general K Scott Gudgeon who directed praise to Fiji peacekeepers particularly those in Sinai.
"Fijian soldiers have consistently managed these often difficult circumstances coolly and professionally," Mr Gudgeon said.
He also commended Lieutenant Colonel Motufaga, the Fiji battalion's commanding officer for his "outstanding leadership and willingness and ability to make timely adjustments in these unprecedented circumstances".
According to a Ministry of Information statement Fijian soldiers were successfully leading Civilian Observer Units (COU) through various zones in Sinai which allowed these units to carry our vital tasks in peacekeeping areas.
"A key role carried out by Fiji's troops includes providing assistance such as medical assistance at refugee sites in these areas," the statement said.
Mr Gudgeon further expressed his gratitude.
He said: "I value the dedicated professionalism of the Fijian contingent and the willingness of the Fijian Government to accept these additional responsibilities to maintain the MFO mission."
