"I again demand the immediate and unconditional release of these brave blue helmets who were deployed to the region to bring stability for the sake of the people. We are working around the clock for their release," Mr Ban confirmed.

He also confirmed that yesterday, he spoke with Fijian Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, updating him on the progress and state of Fiji's captured peacekeepers.
