The Prime Minister thanked the US for its assistance towards the tsunami relief and rehabilitation efforts and indicated that a lot of rehabilitation work remains to be done.

Dr Sikua also outlined the Coalition for National Unity and Rural Advancement (CNURA) Government's main priority areas and highlighted Solomon Islands commitment to closely work with other regional countries through dialogue and mutual respect.

Meanwhile, M Davis who left Honiara yesterday said he was very pleased with the friendly and cordial reception given to him by Prime Minister Sikua.

He said this was reflected very well during the recent political events which saw the establishment of a new government in a peaceful democratic process without any sort of violence.
