Solomons and Iceland establish links

3:06 pm on 24 April 2007

The Solomon Islands has formally established relations with Iceland.

The Solomons ambassador to the UN, Colin Beck, signed and exchanged notes with the Iceland ambassador Hjamar Hanesson in New York to establish the link.

The two countries have also held discussions on possible areas of co-operation such as fisheries and energy.

It is likely that Solomon Islanders will study fisheries practices and geothermal programmes in Iceland.
