Solomons opposition leader says RAMSI review needs to be based on task achievement

The opposition leader in Solomons Islands , Fred Fono, wants the current review of the Regional Assistance Mission (RAMSI), to be based on task achievement.

The Pacific Islands Forum will be sending two delegates to Honiara on Thursday for a review as requested by the Solomon’s Prime Minister at last year’s Forum summit in Fiji.

Fono says it is clearly the government’s policy to get an exit strategy established.

But, Mr Fono feels that a lot of work still needs to be done in capacity building, in the transfer of knowlege and training in areas such as the police.

“There needs to be good capacity training programmes to enable Solomon Island police to be trained and equipped before RAMSI could look at leaving them on their own.”
