Pledge of support

JAPAN will always support Fiji as it works towards establishing democracy in the country.

This was one of the key areas addressed by outgoing Japan ambassador Eiichi Oshima, who said he had every faith in Fiji's abilities to restore itself to true democracy.

"Japan always supports Fiji's progress towards democratisation," Mr Oshima said.

"I am sure that Fiji will build a truly democratic nation where human rights are guaranteed and achieves national unity by removing all forms of discrimination as well as establishes a transparent and accountable political system.

"I regret that I won't be able to witness the general election this year in Fiji, but I intend to follow the developments closely from Japan."

He said his experiences in Fiji over the two-year term in which he served as ambassador would be forever cherished.

"If there is anything I could do for Japan and Fiji, as well as other Pacific Island countries, I would be delighted to contribute further.

"After I go back to Japan, I will be retiring from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and perhaps help younger generations."
