Georgia President Mikheil Saakashvili has expressed support towards Fiji Government’s Roadmap and Strategic Framework.

He has also pledged his support towards education in Fiji to provide rural schools with 1,000 net-books.

This follows a meeting between Saakashvili and Fiji’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola in Georgia yesterday.

Speaking after the meeting, Kubuabola said they are keen to further cooperation between the two countries.

“We also discussed Fiji’s progress towards free and fair election in 2014,” Kubuabola said.

“Saakashvili also reiterated his Government’s standing invitation for Prime Minister Bainimarama to visit Georgia.”

Later in the afternoon, Kubuabola spoke at the Georgian Ambassadorial Meeting, where he presented an update on Fiji’ progress on the Roadmap, in particular, the progress on the Constitution-making process and the Electronic Voter Registration for the 2014 General Elections.

The Ambassadorial  Meeting is an annual gathering of over 70 Georgian Ambassadors and overseas missions representatives who come together to discuss Georgia’s foreign policies and other issues of importance to the country.
