Solomons' PM calls RAMSI a regional success

From , 5:05 am on 28 June 2017

The prime minister of Solomon Islands says the country's partnership with the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands is a Pacific success story.

The mission departs Solomon Islands on Friday June 30 having completed a 14 year peace building mission in the country following a violent ethnic conflict which saw hundreds killed, tens of thousands displaced around the turn of the century.

During a special parliament session on Tuesday Manasseh Sogavare tabled a joint report on the mission's activities in the country since 2003.

Our reporter Koroi Hawkins was at parliament and filed this report.
