Guyana, Fiji establish diplomatic relations


George Talbot[] – Guyana and the Government of the Republic of Fiji have formally established diplomatic relations with the signing of a Communiqué in New York by Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador George Talbot and the Permanent Representative of Fiji to the United Nations, Ambassador Peter Thomson.

A media release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that by signing the Communiqué both States have agreed for their diplomatic relations to be guided by the principles and purposes of the United Nations Charter and international law particularly on equality among States, respect for national sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity, non-interference in the internal affairs of other States, and respect for international treaties.

Guyana’s decision to establish diplomatic relations with Fiji was taken after democratic elections were held in Fiji on September 17, 2014 following a period of military rule and Fiji’s subsequent readmission into the Commonwealth.

The decision is also in keeping with the foreign policy of the Government of Guyana to develop relations with those Member States of the international community with which it shares mutual interests and values.
