RAMSI head acknowledges support from FSM

10:58 am on 3 November 2006

RAMSI Special Coordinator James Batley has thanked the Federated States of Micronesia for helping a friend through practical support for the regional assistance mission.

Mr Batley says FSM has provided police to work alongside the Solomon Islands Police Force since March this year and at the recent Pacific Islands Forum joined other Pacific nations in supporting the ongoing work of RAMSI.

Two police officers from FSM work as part of RAMSI's Participating Police Force alongside Solomon Islands police.

They are both due to leave at the end of the month and will be replaced by two more officers from FSM.
