Talks in Solomons Islands on exit strategy for RAMSI

New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Winston Peters, says the Solomon Islands government is discussing an exit strategy for the Australian-led regional assistance mission.

Mr Peters along with his Australian counterpart, Alexander Downer, arrived in the Solomon’s capital Honiara yesterday for high level talks.
