Samuel Berenyi
Saturday, January 18, 2014

PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says Fiji, as a friend of Israel, will remember the "lasting legacy of late Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon in his role as a military and political leader".

In a condolence message to his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, Commodore Bainimarama said: "Fijians send their warmest thoughts and prayers to the prime minister and the people of Israel during this period as they celebrate the life of such a leader and the heritage that his footprints leave behind.

"The late leader will be remembered as someone who placed the security of his nation above all."

Mr Sharon died on January 11.
