LAND AGREEMENT SIGNED BETWEEN USA AND SOLOMONS
The United States Government and the Solomon Islands government have signed an agreement to secure extended boundary around the Guadalcanal American Memorial at Skyline, in Honiara.
A statement from the US Embassy in Honiara said the signing, which took place on Tuesday, follows concerns that some individuals have encroached the land.
Through the agreement, the Ministry of Lands approved the request for an extended boundary, that includes a larger perimeter around the Memorial.
The agreement was signed by the American Battle Monuments Commissioner Larry Adkinson, the U.S. Ambassador to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu Walter North, and U.S. Consular Agent Keithie Saunders on behalf of the U.S. government.
Acting Commissioner of Lands Nesta Maelanga, Lands Officer Urban Peter Buka, and Deputy Commissioner Lands Abel Viuru signed the Agreement on behalf of the Solomon Islands Government.
