SIG's shaky relationship with Australia won't affect 2007 budget: PM Sogavare

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare had dismissed public concerns that government's shaky political relationship with Australia might drastically affect government's national budget 2007.

Prime Minister, Sogavare says people who politicise such propaganda information were merely speculating.

In an exclusive interview with SIBC, Prime Minister Sogavare assures the public that as far as he is concerned there is no need for concern.

Mr Sogavare says its nonsense to assume that just because Solomon Islands and Australian politicians don't agree on certain things, the budget will be affected.

The Prime Minister says while the exchanges of words between political leaders continue, governments of both countries understand their roles in co-operating to provide services to the people.

Mr Sogavare says Australia would still honour its on-going commitments to assist Solomon Islands.
