SUVA, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- Fijian Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola has addressed the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) on Fiji's progress towards elections and also on Fiji's foreign relations, the Fijian government announced Wednesday.

In his statement, Kubuabola, who was visiting India, underscored the significance of the upcoming general election that will take place by September as a historical milestone for the people of Fiji, "where for the first time in its history, Fiji will hold free, fair and democratic elections", said the Ministry of Information.

Kubuabola informed the council about the reforms and the positive changes that the Fijian government had put in place since 2006 in its efforts to "Build a Better Fiji for All".

While discussing the developments in Fiji's foreign relations over the years, Kubuabola said that "Fiji has become a more confident and stronger nation in its conduct of diplomacy among the international community. Fiji has grown and embraces itself as a good global citizen with full respect for international law and practice."

"The Fijian government is appreciative of the support of our partners towards our efforts to expand our relations with all the members of the UN member countries and further deepen its relations with its friends, like India," he added.

The Indian Council of World Affairs is India's national institution that is devoted exclusively to the study of international relations and foreign affairs.
