Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has stressed the importance of good relationships saying that the Government aims to promote good relationships.
While addressing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs staff and the Fijian diplomats serving overseas who joined virtually at a welcoming ceremony for him and Assistant Minister Sakiusa Tubuna in Suva yesterday, Rabuka said this is the aim of Government and every ministry, but particularly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“It’s all about our work to promote good relationships. Not our people, our citizens, and in the diaspora but to all, all the countries you represent us in and all the people in those countries.”
“You probably recall one of the announcements I made towards the end of the campaign season “let love shine” as a beacon, as a guiding principle in the matter that the party I lead working towards elections and in Government, in case we win the majority, which we did not but we got for the first time elected a Prime Minister on the floor of our Parliament since independence.”
“This is what Governments are all about and this is what we as a Ministry in Fiji and abroad should be doing.”
“We want people to live together peacefully.”
“When we live together peacefully, we can look forward to the blessings of God. It is proper that we live together peaceably with love.”
Rabuka further stated that although we are now constitutionally a secular state, one point in Christian living we must aspire to is to live our lives loving one another.
“Where there is unity, God commands his blessings.”
