Fijian peacekeepers talks underway

29 Aug, 2014

Fiji Prime Minister Voreqe (Frank) Bainarama says talks are underway to free the 43 Fijian UN Disengagement Observer Force peacekeeping troops captured by rebels in the Golan Heights:

I want to assure the families of the soldiers we are doing everything possible to secure their safe return. The latest information we have is that they are safe and I can say now that the negotiations for their release have already begun.

Bainimarama says Fiji is ‘united as a nation in praying for their safe return.’
