Discussions on how the United States and Fiji can work together to promote shared goals and tackle challenges were part of the agenda as US Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro visited Fiji this week.

His visit is aimed at strengthening the US-Fiji partnership to promote security, stability, and prosperity in the Pacific.

Del Toro says he welcomes the chance to meet with friends and partners in the Fiji Military Forces and the Fiji Navy and to speak with students about how the US and Fiji can work together to tackle challenges such as the climate crisis.

He also laid a wreath at the National War Memorial in memory of all those who gave their lives in the line of duty since World War I.

Del Toro met with the Minister for Infrastructure and Meteorological Services Jone Usamate, RFMF Commander Major General Jone Kalouniwai and Commander of the Fiji Navy, Commodore Humphery Tawake.
