Solomons defers MSG meeting until November

4:19 pm on 22 October 2010

A special meeting of the Melanesian Spearhead Group planned to be held in Solomon Islands this month has been postponed.

The meeting is now expected to be held next month.

Pacnews says the host, the Solomon Islands prime minister, Danny Philip, wants more time to consider the proposed plan to hand over the chairmanship from Vanuatu to Fiji via Solomon Islands.

The special meeting was originally called to reconcile Vanuatu and Fiji over the MSG chairmanship.
