Interesting the "revelation", almost six months after the event, in the "Island Sun".

Certainly very important that the media keep the people informed. However the mention of "a huge red banner" does not indicate secrecy on the part of the Solomon Islands Government.

I would also question the validity of the statement "China's arch rival Taiwan". To my understanding Taiwan would not have difficulty with the Solomon Islands establishing diplomatic relations with China whilst maintaining diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

Taiwan is a truly democratic country and respects the rights of people to have multiple friendships. On the contrary China has a "them or us" policy.

China's refusal to give diplomatic recognition to the Vatican is a prime example.

In our area of interest, although PNG gives diplomatic recognition to China, Taiwan continues to provide agricultural missions to assist the people in remote areas.
