The RFMF he said is ready to assist FRCA to ensure our country remains safe.

“To be able to filter out the bad and allow the good to come into the country you will need skill sets and equipment and we’re [RFMF] happy to assist in a way with sharing some of the skill sets that we have that might help with your [FRCA] work at the border,” Rear Admiral Naupoto said.
