Niue to join RAMSI

4:00 pm on 17 October 2006

Two police officers from Niue are expected to join the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands in November .

The announcement was made by the RAMSI Special Coordinator James Batley.

He says Solomon Islanders will understand the magnitude of the generosity from a country with very limited resources which is recovering from a major cyclone.

With Niue joining, all Pacific Islands Forum countries will have sent police to the RAMSI mission.

This comes as the Solomon Islands government has threatened to review the act which allows RAMSI to operate in the country.
