Forum secretariat hopes for common sense in Solomons waste debate

3:45 pm on 8 May 2002

The secretary-general of the Pacific Islands Forum says the organisation will deal with the Solomon Islands waste plan if it becomes an issue.

Noel Levy says the Solomon Islands government knows what its obligations are under the Waigani convention and he is sure it won't make a rash decision.

"Until a definite decision is taken, we will just observe what is going on and we hope that, you know, common sense will prevail, at the end of the day."
