Fiji at the Vatican

Today at the Vatican Apostolic Palace, the Holy Father, Pope Francis received in Audience the President of the Republic of Fiji, His Excellency Mister Jioji Konousi Konrote, who subsequently met with His Eminence, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State, who was accompanied by His Excellency, Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States.

During the cordial discussions, the existing good relations between the Holy See and Fiji and the contribution of the Catholic Church to the life of the country were evoked. Attention then turned to the issue of climate change and, above all, to its ethical dimension, which demands solidarity with the most vulnerable social groups and countries, and with the new generations.

Finally, the parties discussed the collaboration of the Fijian armed forces in United Nations peace missions in various parts of the world.
