    Default Solomon Islands Govt suspends 'foreign' naval visits

    "SYDNEY, Aug 30 (Reuters) - The Solomon Islands has suspended entry into its waters for foreign navy ships pending adoption of a new process for approval of port visits, the prime minister's office said on Tuesday, in a bid to better police its exclusive economic zones.
    The suspension of entry followed incidents last week when a U.S. Coast Guard vessel, the Oliver Henry, and a Royal Navy vessel, HMS Spey, were unable to make port calls because the government did not respond to requests to refuel and provision.

    They were policing illegal fishing in Solomons waters, most of which is by Chinese trawlers……….

    With hefty payoffs to the local officials, no doubt.

    China can buy the Solomons, but can they hold them?

    China doesn't buy, it lends favourably until you can't pay.
    Look to Africa.
