Fijian Police Commissioner, Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho, arrived in Papua New Guinea today amidst the standoff between his PNG counterpart and Fraud investigators.
Despite recent events, PNG Police Commissioner, Gari Baki, was at the Jacksons International airport to welcome Fiji’s Top Cop.
Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho was given a guard of honour, after which he inspected the parade hosted by the members of the Royal Papua New Guinea constabulary.
He will be in the country for two days discussing regional issues with Commissioner Baki.
Mr Baki said he will be pushing forward the idea for Fiji to take on-board a contingent from the PNG police force to be part of international Peace Keeping missions.
“I am contemplating and seriously looking at, not in the too distance future, having a team from RPNGC to be part of the Fijian police contingent that deploys to overseas mission.
“This is what I’ll be pushing as Commissioner,” Gari Baki said.
Fiji and PNG are members of the Melanesian Spearhead Group and both Commissioners will discuss at the top level to include the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary in international operations – something Fiji has experience on.
