9:45 am on 29 January 2009

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key says the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands is expected to remain in place for at least another three to five years.

Mr Key gave the assessment after visiting RAMSI headquarters in Honiara and meeting prime minister, Derek Sikua.

RAMSI was deployed in 2003 following an invitation by the Solomon's government after a breakdown in law and order there.
