Praise for Fijian troops

A SENIOR United Nations official has commended the Fijian military's efforts in difficult peacekeeping operations in the Middle East and Africa, according to the Fiji Government.

This could see Fiji be part of more such missions in the future.

Military commander Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga met UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations Under Secretary-General Herve Ladsous as part of a series of meetings at the UN headquarters in New York, which was concluded earlier this week.

Mr Ladsous commended RFMF's peacekeeping efforts in the Middle East and Africa, said the Ministry of Information.

Col Tikoitoga assured Mr Ladsous that he will convey the UN's thanks to the government of Fiji and to Fijian peacekeepers in the field.

It is believed part of the meet was to discuss how Fiji could aid in other UN Peacekeeping missions.

The discussions at the UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations addressed peacekeeping resources that will be required for existing and future UN peacekeeping operations, the Ministry of Information said.

The discussions covered the training and equipping of peacekeepers to properly prepare them for the increasingly complex task of peacekeeping.
