Fiji and the Republic of Haiti formalised diplomatic relations at a ceremony at the Fiji Mission to the United Nations in New York this week.

 The Permanent Representative of Haiti to the United Nations, Ambassador Jean Cazeau and his Fiji counterpart, Ambassador Peter Thomson, signed a joint communiqué establishing diplomatic relations between the two developing nations.

 The communiqué expresses the desire of the Republics of Fiji and Haiti to promote mutual understanding and strengthen ties of friendship and cooperation between their two peoples.

 The communiqué affirms that the relationship will be guided by the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations and other norms of international law, particularly those pertaining to the promotion of international peace and security, the respect for State sovereignty, equality among States, independence, territorial integrity, international treaties and non-interference in the internal affairs of States.

 Following the formalisation ceremonies, Ambassadors Cazeau and Thomson held talks on areas of common interest between their two countries, including the programmes for Haiti’s recovery from the devasting earthquake of 2010, the steady progress of the Fiji Roadmap towards sustainable democracy, the two countries cooperative work in AOSIS on Climate Change issues, and the opportunities available for Haiti and Fiji to work together in the Group of 77.
