Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama had extensive discussions with the United States National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on security and development cooperation at the White House in Washington, DC today.
 
While welcoming the closer cooperation between Fiji and the United States of America, Bainimarama and Sullivan discussed strengthening the alignment between the US's Indo-Pacific Strategy and the Pacific’s 2050 Strategy.
 
Bainimarama urged the USA for a deeper and more sustained US engagement with the Pacific for a long time.
 
The PM said for the Blue Pacific, the security consequences arising from climate change will remain among its gravest challenges.
 
He further said that sea level rise and climate catastrophes continue to damage our maritime infrastructure such as wharves and jetties, our land-based infrastructure such as bridges and roads, and our human development infrastructure such as schools and hospitals at a frightening pace.
 
He highlighted that the Pacific is threatened by growing non-traditional threats, including cyber threats, illicit financial flows, the growing narcotics trans-shipment networks across the Pacific, and illegal fisheries across the region.
 
"The Pacific looks to the U.S to be firmly, unequivocally, and fully on our side as we try to overcome these challenges."
 
Sullivan also welcomed this great level of strategic dialogue between Fiji and the USA and said President Joe Biden was fully committed to working with Fiji and the Pacific in responding to these challenges together.
 
Both Bainimarama and Sullivan discussed the forthcoming and first President Biden and Leaders Summit to be held at the White House later this year. 
 
They also focused their discussions on trade, maritime, and security cooperation.
