The Solomon Islands Government yesterday joined the International Community to support the United Nations (UN) Security Council Resolution 1973 on the crisis in Libya.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Trade Peter Shanel Agovaka made the announcement at a media conference in Honiara yesterday in view of escalating violence that killed innocent civilians in Libya.
“Solomon Islands will always support any resolution that aims to protect human rights and in this situation Resolution 1973 is fully supported,” Mr Agovaka said.He said in the past few weeks, the world has witnessed widespread demonstrations across the Middle East including Libya.
“One thing that these protests have clearly demonstrated is that governments cannot deny the will of the people that calls for recognition of their wellbeing and human rights.”
Minister Agovaka said Solomon Islands hopes that in carrying out Resolution 1973, the International Community will be able to address the growing crisis in Libya.
