Fiji’s President, His Excellency Ratu Epeli Nailatikau was today visited by his Tokelau counterpart, His Excellency Kerisiano Kalolo.

Kalolo is in the country to extend his government’s gratitude to Fiji for the support rendered towards the Tokelau government’s submission to the United Nations at the UN’s special committee meeting on Declonisation, held in June.

Fiji’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Peter Thompson introduced the two draft resolutions which sought to update the UN special committee on decolonisation on the efforts towards self-determination by Tokelau and New Caledonia.

Kalolo said that the UN special committee adopted the resolutions by consensus.

“I also wish to thank the Fijian Government for its support towards Tokelauan students currently studying at the University of the South Pacific, the Fiji School of Medicine and the Fiji School of Nursing,” Kalolo said.
 
Kalolo and Nailatikau both agreed to strengthen relations between the two countries.
