Korea and Fiji held a meeting between the heads of delegation in Apia, Samoa during the 48th Pacific Islands Forum and related Meetings on Thursday.
Jeong-kyu Lee, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Korea and Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, Minister of National Security and Defense of Fiji discussed issues including bilateral relations, international cooperation, regional and global issues such as climate change.
During the meeting, Korean Deputy Minister Lee announced his government will contribute US$110,000 in funding Fiji’s presidency of the 23rd conference of the Parties (COP 23) of the United Nations Framework Convention on the Climate Change. (UNFCCC)
Korea anticipates Fiji to exercise outstanding leadership in orchestrating the COP23 which is crucial for maintaining momentum towards the successful conclusion of the on-going post-Paris Agreement negotiations and consolidating the international cooperation against climate change, and therefore the Korean government is offering its support for and assistance to Fiji in achieving the successful COP23.
As one of the Fiji’s best friends, Korea will continue to extend its support and help to Fiji in the global arena in the days to come.
