The Defence Minister is home after a trip to Solomon Islands amid heightened tensions around the Pacific.

The government's trying to bolster relationships throughout the region after Solomon Islands signed a wide-reaching security agreement with China earlier in the year.

Māni Dunlop asked the minister Peeni Henare what progress had been made on Aotearoa's 'maritime security' work plan with the Solomons.
