New Zealand's Foreign Minister has arrived in Fiji to kick off a whirlwind three-nation tour of the Pacific.
The Winston Peters-led delegation also includes two other government ministers in Carmel Sepuloni and Aupito William Sio and three additional MPs.
Mr Peters landed in Suva last night and will meet two senior members of Fiji's cabinet, Acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Foreign Minister Inia Seruiratu.
Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Banimarama is currently out of the country.
Mr Peters says his trip is a further reflection of New Zealand's energised approach to the region as part of the so-called 'Pacific Reset'.
The delegation will travel to Kirbati on Thursday and then on to Tuvalu.
Mr Peters says in each country discussions will be centred on climate change and development co-ordination.
