VANUATU has offered to help Fiji in whatever way it can as the country makes preparations for elections in 2014.
Vanuatu Prime Minister Moana Carcasses Kalosil made the comments as he met Fiji President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau in Port Vila earlier this week.
"We are always here ready to assist Fiji whenever Fiji will need us and we are more than happy with the assenting of the new Constitution," Mr Kalosil said in a Ministry of Information statement.
"I must commend the leaders of Fiji and its Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama for a very well documented Constitution."
Mr Kalosil also expressed his appreciation for assistance provided by Fiji to the Vanuatu education system.
"We recently signed an MOU with Fiji and we needed a lot of good teachers and the education system in Fiji is very good and we are hopeful that we will benefit from this agreement.
"I want to ensure that we give our citizens the best education and Fiji can provide us that opportunity."
Ratu Epeli is in Vanuatu for an official visit and held talks with senior government officials as well as the Fijian community living in Port Vila.
"The meeting between Ratu Epeli was very fruitful and positive," Mr Kalosil was quoted as saying.
"We are very grateful and honoured to have the Fijian head of State visit Vanuatu."
Ratu Epeli is touring countries who are part of the Melanesian Spearhead Group to strengthen relations with them.
