PRIME Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today reaffirmed Fiji’s continuing support to the people of West Papua on the alleged human rights violations in West Papua.
Mr Bainimarama said he respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states, including Indonesia.
In supporting the vision of a Blue Pacific, Mr Bainimarama said that Fiji supports the 10 year moratorium on seabed mining to allow for a decade of proper scientific research of our economic zones and territorial waters.
“I reiterate my call to PIF Members during the opening of our Climate Change Sautalaga event to step up and support this ambitious venture,” he said.
