Solomon Islands Opposition MP encourages PM Sogavare to attend Pacific Forum Meeting in Tonga

Solomon Islands Opposition MP Edward Huni'ehu is encouraging the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare to attend the upcoming Forum meeting which starts next week in Nukualofa, Tonga.

Mr Huni'ehu made the gesture following the Prime minister's intention not to attend the meeting.

He says with many issues pointing to Solomon Islands' government, Mr Sogavare should be at the meeting to clarify statements and actions he made which may have caused disappointment to other Forum leaders.

Mr Huni'ehu says the time would be crucial for the Prime Minister to explain Solomon Islands' position on certain issues and statements coming from the government in relation to RAMSI and other Pacific island leaders.

He says that although Solomon Islands values the relationship it has with Taiwan, Prime minister should attend the meeting.

Mr Huni'ehu says the Prime minister's travel to Majuro to meet the Taiwanese president Chen Shui-bian and the Forum meeting were made known to him some time ago.

The Opposition MP says Mr Sogavare should have made arrangements to meet the President and attend the Forum meeting.
