The State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China Wang Yi met with the Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Henry Puna this afternoon.

This is his first meeting in Fiji after arriving in the country yesterday.

Puna says over the course of their discussion this afternoon, he would like to emphasize three key issues.

He says first is the urgent and immediate climate change crisis.

Puna adds the forum leaders have identified climate change as the single greatest threat facing our Blue Pacific.

The Secretary-General says keeping the world climate below 1.5 degrees is absolutely vital for the future prosperity, survival and the well being of our future.

This is also Wang’s second visit to Fiji as the first was in 2018. During his visit, Wang will pay a courtesy call on the President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere and meet with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.

The Prime Minister will also join Wang for the 2nd China-Pacific Island Countries Foreign Ministers’ meeting.
