Indonesia and Fiji are looking forward to seeking opportunities from improved relations between the two countries, Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa said here on Wednesday.

Speaking on the sidelines of his meeting with his Fijian counterpart Ratu Inoke Kubuobala, Marty said that both countries are looking forward to better cooperation in trade, tourism and business sectors.

"This is a working visit of my counterpart from Fiji. We were discussing bilateral issues and possibilities that can be tapped by both countries," Marty told reporters here, adding that it was also related to the plan of Fijian government to open an embassy here.

Besides that, the visit of Kubuobala followed Indonesia's participation as observing country in Melanesia Streerhead Group, an organization of countries in south pacific region held late last month. Marty said that Fiji supported Indonesia's participation in the meeting.

Marty said that during the meeting, Kubuobala said that the Fijian government intends to join the pact of Non-Block countries that aims to enhance the welfare of its member countries.
