Top level meeting

Nasik Swami
Thursday, April 10, 2014

FOREIGN Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola will be meeting his New Zealand counterpart, Murray McCully to discuss bilateral and regional issues concerning the two countries in Suva today.

It is envisaged that one of the key issues to be discussed concerns Fiji's preparations for democratic elections later this year, which New Zealand is assisting Fiji on.

During his stay, Mr McCully will also meet the Attorney-General and Minister Responsible for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Agriculture Minister Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu.

An Information Ministry statement released last night said his visit follows Australia and New Zealand's lifting of all sanctions against Fiji on March 31.

This is the second time Mr McCully will visit Fiji this year. He was in Fiji in January as the chair and part of the Ministerial Contact Group of the Pacific Islands Forum.

He will be in Fiji for four days.
