His Excellency the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau is presented a gift by the Brazilian Defence Minister, Hon Celso Amorim.
Relationship between Fiji and Brazil will be strengthened even more now that we have an embassy here.
Those were the words of the Fijian President His Excellency Ratu Epeli Nailatikau who is currently on an official visit to Brazil.
The Fijian Head of State made the comments during his traditional welcome ceremony at the Fiji embassy where he met staff of the Fiji mission.
“I have no doubt that the relations between our two countries (Brazil – Fiji) will continue to grow,” he told the staff.
“Your work here is very important in bringing the two nations closer and our footings have never been on solid grounds before. I am certain that we will work closely with the Brazilian government for the benefit of our two people.”
He also gave his best wishes to Brazil for the FIFA Soccer World Cup which will starts later this week.
“We are here at a very important time, a time when the whole world has eyes on Brazil and please convey my best wishes to the Brazilian team which is playing host to the world cup,” Ratu Epeli said.
“They are a very good side and we wish them all the best.”
