The next Fiji con­tin­gent leav­ing for peace­keep­ing du­ties un­der the United Na­tions Dis­en­gage­ment Ob­server Force (UNDOF) for the Golan Heights is ex­pected to leave next month. This was re­vealed by Min­is­ter for De­fence, Im­mi­gra­tion and Na­tional Se­cu­rity, Ti­moci Natuva, in Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day. He said the ro­ta­tion would be im­por­tant be­cause the de­ployed per­son­nel would be out­fit­ted with arms and equip­ment that was sup­plied un­der Rus­sian mil­i­tary aid to Fiji. “The Fiji con­tin­gent in UNDOF will con­tinue in the sup­port re­spon­si­bil­i­ties re­quired of us; Fiji re­mains stead­fast in the com­mit­ment,” Mr Natuva said. “The Fiji con­tin­gent serv­ing with UNDOF in the Golan still re­mains on the Al­pha side of the Area of Sep­a­ra­tion (AOS) in Is­rael,” he said.
