Fijian President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau received a courtesy call from the Ulu-o-Tokelau, Aliki Faipule Kerisiano Kalolo Wednesday at Government House.
 
Kalolo is also Minister for Foreign Affairs, Minister for Education, Minister for Economic Development, Natural Resources and Environment (including Agriculture & Fisheries).

He personally thanked the President and the Government of Fiji for its support towards Tokelau’s submission to the United Nations at the UN’s Special Committee Meeting on Decolonization, held this past June.

Kalolo also added that Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Peter Thompson introduced the two draft resolutions which sought to update the UN Special Committee on Decolonization on the efforts towards self-determination by Tokelau and New Caledonia. He said the UN Special Committee adopted the resolutions by consensus.
 
“I also wish to thank the Fijian Government for its support towards Tokelauan students currently studying at the University of the South Pacific, the Fiji School of Medicine and the Fiji School of Nursing,” Kalolo said.
 
Kalolo and President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau both agreed to strengthen relations between the two countries.
