5:01 pm on 20 March 2012

A new Solomon Islands High Commissioner to Fiji has been appointed.

Patteson Oti was commissioned yesterday by the Governor General Sir Frank Kabui.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation quotes Mr Oti, a former Cabinet Minister, saying the appointment is something he will take very seriously.

Mr Oti is going to Fiji almost immediately to assist in the preparations for a special summit of the Melanesian Spearhead Group in Suva at the end of March.
