Australian High Commissioner On Solomons

Press Statement by the Australian High Commissioner,

HE Frank Ingruber

The reports which appeared in the Solomon Star newspaper on 12 February about my meeting on 10 February with the Prime Minister, Hon Danny Philip, were a misrepresentation of that meeting.

While it is diplomatic practice not to reveal details of high-level discussions, the claims that have been made about the meeting and about Australia’s position are not correct.

Australia’s position is that the accusations against Australia and RAMSI in the so-called ‘intelligence report’ are entirely baseless
Australia does not seek to interfere in political developments in Solomon Islands and has not done so.

Those developments are purely a matter for Solomon Islanders.
