Prime Minister's Address to the Nation on Troop Deployment to the Syrian Golan Heights

Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Suva, Fiji

My fellow Fijians,

I want to speak to you directly tonight about our contribution to United Nations peacekeeping efforts and the 182 Fijian soldiers who are about to leave our shores for the Middle East.

It was wonderful to see the reception they received in Suva today as they marched through the capital. Etched on their faces was the pride, determination and commitment that we are certain will carry them through the mission ahead.
