16th December, 2011, Suva: Fijian Prime Minister Commodore Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama released the following statement today on the occasion of the conclusion of the United States mission in Iraq:

“On behalf of all Fijians, I welcome the official conclusion to the United States’ mission in Iraq—mourning all those lives lost, but hopeful that an independent Iraq will bring a peaceful and prosperous future for all Iraqis.
