Fiji outruns Russia to the Golan Heights

+

Finally, it is the military from the island country of Fiji who will replace the Austrian peacekeepers on the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) stationed on the Golan Heights.

The contingent will be made up of 300 soldiers representing one-twelfth of the Fijan armed forces.

However, the question of the Russian presence has still to be settled since this time it is the Filipinos who might withdraw from UNDOF.

Meanwhile, Israeli-Russian negotiations are continuing.
