The Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama, will not be attending the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly that started in New York yesterday.
In a statement released yesterday, the Ministry of Information clarified that the PM would not now be attending this meeting because of pressing domestic issues. The PM had asked the Foreign Minister, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola – who is already in the United States – to make the speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Fiji’s behalf.
Last Friday at the Sheraton Fiji Resort, Denarau, Commodore Bainimarama confirmed to Fiji Sun that he would be in New York this week to attend the UN meeting.
However, this has changed and Ratu Inoke who had left the country for New York on Monday, would be delivering Fiji’s address.
