Community of nations has lost one of the great champions of peace with the passing of the Sultan of Oman - Bainimarama

Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama says the community of nations has lost one of the great champions of peace with the passing of  Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, the Sultan of Oman.

Bainimarama says the Sultan’s love for humankind was exemplified through his unrelenting commitment to a world free from violence and conflict.

He says as a nation with an over 40-year commitment to UN Peacekeeping, the Fijian people share the Sultan’s life-long purpose of peace and pledge to uphold his legacy in the years to come.

Bainimarama says Oman’s journey of progress and modernisation over the past half-century is owed to the Sultan’s visionary leadership and unwavering dedication to the wellbeing of the Omani people.

The Prime Minister says the prayers of the Fijian people are with the people of Oman as they bear with this tremendous loss.
