TAIWAN TIES END.
Quoting the Solomon Islands newspaper – 17 September 2019
“THE Solomon Islands Government last night cut off the nation’s diplomatic ties with Taiwan.
“This came after Cabinet endorsed a Caucus resolution to severe the 36-year-old relationship.
“The decision came just hours after Taiwan’s deputy Foreign Affairs minister Dr Sze-chien Hsu landed in Honiara in a last-ditch effort to save the ties.
“But the Sogavare Government has already made up its mind.
“After Caucus voted in the resolution to switch ties in the afternoon, cabinet wasted no time to endorse it.
“Government insiders said Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, who leaves for the United Nations General Assembly in New York this weekend, will announce the decision when he addresses the UN.”
