Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has formally announced the 2015 Melanesian Spearhead Group Leaders Communique today.
The communique for the twentieth MSG Leaders Summit was formalised and signed last night instead of today because a number of MSG Prime Ministers, including Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, will leave Honiara today.
Meanwhile, an unsanctioned media release from the Office of the PNG Prime Minister sighted by SIBC news says MSG Leaders have granted observer status to the West Papua United Liberation Movement.
It also reports MSG has granted associate membership to Indonesia.
SIBC News understands the West Papua United Liberation Movement had applied for full membership to the MSG.
