THE Fiji Mission in Liberia last week took time off duties to celebrate the United Nations Day.
The police delegation, dressed in sulu and bula shirts, sang Fijian songs and performed a meke.
They also made a lovo and demonstrated some local art and craft and sent their best wishes to loved ones in Fiji.
The United Nations celebrated its 63rd anniversary on October 24.
UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon, in a statement, called on leaders of the world to play their part in keeping with the Millennium Development Goals.
"There is no time to lose. The United Nations must deliver results for a safer, healthier, more prosperous world. On this UN Day, I call on all partners and leaders to do their part and keep the promise."
The eight (8) MDG goals were agreed by 189 countries in the Millennium Development Summit in 2000.
