THE UN has commended Fiji for contributing to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) at the Golan Heights

Military Advisor, Office of Military Affairs in the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations Lieutenant General Babacar Gaye told The Fiji Times that Fiji's contribution would greatly assist UNDOF as they tried to maintain ceasefire between Israel and the Syrian Arabic Republic as prescribed by the 1974 Agreement on Disengagement between Israeli and Syrian forces.

"The Department of Peacekeeping Operations is grateful to the Government of Fiji as the UN continues peacekeeping on the Golan." Lt-Gen Gaye said.

"In view of the challenging operational environment under which UNDOF is operating, the contribution of Fiji will greatly assist UNDOF as the Force continues to use its best efforts to maintain the ceasefire between Israel and the Syrian Arabic Republic."
