Fiji celebrates its commitment at UN 75 #Fiji’s commitment to the United Nations has been highlighted again at the United Nations 75th Anniversary celebrations organized by the University of South Pacific.
This has been exemplified in our contribution to many UN peacekeeping missions since 1978 including Lebanon, Darfur, Sudan, Iraq, Liberia, Kosova, Cambodia, Somalia, Namibia, Angola, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Rawanda and Timor Leste.
Fiji joined the United Nations as its 127th member on 13 October 1970 based on its trust in the central role of the organization in the maintenance of international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress.
To this end, Fiji has always been committed to playing its part as a good global citizen in upholding the purpose and principles of the UN Charter.
His Excellency the President, Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konusi Konrote this morning officiated at the United Nations 75th Anniversary official celebrations organized by the University of the South Pacific at its ICT Centre.
The event was attended by dignitaries, diplomatic community and government ministers with a major focus on sustainable development goals for the future.
The future we want and the UN we need was discussed also in a panel discussion which consisted of academics, students and members of civil society.
Fiji has been at the forefront of its commitment to the UN and to multilateralism in forging solutions up global challenges.
