Where in Europe is the last place you would like to be this week? Well, I reckon Brussels, yet Fiji's PM is there for a meeting/conference. Of course the city is in lockdown so how do delegates get to their meeting? In the photo Bainimarama is shaking hands with Mr Mimica. Now the cartoonists could have fun with that name.
PM speaks on high alert situation in Brussels
Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama arrived in Brussels over the weekend in the middle of the Belgian capital being put on high alert.
Speaking from Brussels as he gets ready for ACP/EU talks, Bainimarama said the whole place is closed down including the metro.
Bainimarama told Fijivillage last night that they were advised by the police to fly in by air on Saturday when they travelled from London but the High Commission had already booked them on the Eurostar fast train that took two and a half hours from London to Brussels.
Bainimarama says they have been advised to stay indoors.
He says it is a pity because his visit to the gravesite of Lekima Mua, son of Ratu Sakiusa Vakalolo of Somosomo, Taveuni who was killed during World War 1 had to be cancelled yesterday including a visit to Flanders Field Museum.
