I held an excellent meeting with Prime Minister Abe in Tokyo where we discussed many important ways to strengthen relations between Fiji and Japan. We are all looking forward to the reopening of direct air travel on @FijiAirways between Nadi and Tokyo in July! #Fiji #TeamFiji pic.twitter.com/Fqyuxxcumj— Frank Bainimarama (@FijiPM) May 17, 2018
