Suva: India should support Fiji and other Pacific island countries at the climate change talks to be held in Paris later this year, the government-owned Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC) said on Monday.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama highlighted this in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he congratulated him on India's 69th Independence Day," Xinhua quoted the FBC as saying.
As he paid tribute to the historic relations shared between the two countries, Bainimarama pointed to areas that have the potential to boost and strengthen the Fiji-India ties.
Bainimarama is set to join leaders at the second Forum for India-Pacific Islands Cooperation (FIPIC) summit from Thursday to Friday in India to discuss ways to enhance India's relationship with Fiji and other Pacific island countries.
Nearly 40 percent of Fiji's population is of Indian descent.
