PERIODS of Fiji's history marred by racial discrimination has often disrupted peace in the country.

This sentiment was shared by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum while officiating at the International Day of Peace (IDP) celebrations at Saru MGM School in Lautoka yesterday.

Speaking to students during the event, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said it was important for the country to move past this.

"When we talk about international affairs, it has been said that peace is the absence of war. Unfortunately in Fiji, we've also had periods where we did not have peace," he said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said in the past, a lot of people, including politicians, talked about racial, religious and ethnic differences.
