Update: 5:16PM FOREIGN Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola met his Russian counterpart Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Friday.

The two ministers discussed ways they would help each other out bilaterally.    

They discussed important issues that ranged from bilateral and trade, humanitarian aid and election preparation.     

Fiji and Russia has vowed to strengthen their relation and raise it to greater heights after realising that there's still other areas they could explore and expand on.

The relationship between the two countries dated back to the 19th century when two Russian seafarers Mikhail Lazarev and Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen visited the Ono in the Lau Group, a Ministry of Information statement said.

Mr Lavrov said that warm and friendly ties between their people had been established based on their diaries.

The two ministers revised the course of the agreements, which were reached during the official visit of the Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe  Bainimarama to Russia in June last year.
