All Fijian soldiers serving in the Middle East are safe and well, assures the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF).

RFMF's comment comes in light of the recent outbreak of violence across various Arab states in the Middle East over the weekend.

 "The troops remain safe in their various camps in the Sinai, Iraq and Sudan and their moral remains high." RFMF said in a statement.

 "The RFMF has been closely monitoring the recent developments in the Middle East as well as the safety of the troops on the ground."

 "We receive regular updates from our various missions about the situation on the ground and we can confirm that our troops remain safe and well and their safety is of paramount importance to the missions and the RFMF."

 The RFMF currently has troops deployed to the United Nations Peacekeeping missions in Iraq and Sudan as well as in Sinai with the Multinational Forces and Observers.
