The Secretary General of the Anglican Communion , Canon John Peterson, has praised the work of the Melanesian Brotherhood in Solomon Islands in promoting the peace process.

Cannon Peterson, who is in Honiara for the Church of Melanesia's tenth General Synod, says the Communion appreciates the Brotherhood's involvement in the disarmament process.

He says they should continue to work in the peace process because of the experience they have built up during their work at the time of the ethnic conflict.
