President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere reaffirmed Fiji's support in finding a peaceful solution to the war by Russia against Ukraine.

At a bilateral meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President Katonivere emphasised that his presence at the first-ever summit on peace in Ukraine signifies Fiji's high-level support to Ukraine and its commitment to ending the war and finding a peaceful solution for Ukrainians and the global communities.

The President says Fiji is doing its part about the international actions imposed on Russia and stated that other than voting in support of the United Nations General Assembly Resolutions calling for the immediate withdrawal of Russia from Ukraine, Fiji has also cooperated with the international community, particularly the United States of America to seize a Russian superyacht linked to a sanctioned oligarch.

He says Fiji acknowledges the extensive global repercussions of the conflict including its influence on the Pacific region and commends the leadership and the resilience of the Ukrainian people and to continue to count on Fiji's support.

President Zelenskyy welcomed Fiji's participation at the Summit and for its support towards the peace talks.
