Committee works on decolonisation

FIJI is working with the Melanesian Spearhead Group and the UN Special Committee on Decolonisation to support the efforts of the Kanak people in New Caledonia for the transfer of power to the New Caledonian authorities.

Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama said this while addressing delegates attending the Pacific Regional Seminar on the UN Special Committee on Decolonisation at Sofitel Resort on Denarau yesterday.

"As would be expected, a number of challenges have emerged but Fiji will continue to encourage both sides to work positively within the spirit of the agreement towards a result that is seen as legitimate by all parties," he said.

"As the UN secretary-general himself said at the organisational session of the special committee last year, 'fresh and creative' approaches are required and the committee no longer has "the luxury of indulging in rhetoric and rituals.

"Such fresh and creative approaches must come from you, the delegates and representatives on the committee."

The seminar will end on Friday.
