FIJI hopes to strengthen ties with Afghanistan following this week's accreditation ceremony where Fiji's first non-resident Ambassador to Afghanistan Yogesh Karan will present his credentials to Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai.

The ceremony allowed the two countries to discuss opportunities to work closely to enhance their diplomatic ties.

And in receiving Mr Karan's credentials, Mr Karzai conveyed his best wishes to his Fijian counterpart Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.

"Ambassador Karan said he was honoured to present his credentials to President Karzai and described him as a charismatic and enthusiastic leader who had a deep understanding of politics and diplomacy," a statement yesterday from the Fijian Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation agency reads.
