HONIARA, Solomon Islands (April 20, 1998 - PACNEWS/Ioane)---Solomon Islands Prime Minister Bartholomew Ulufa'alu says his country does not believe in the One-China policy.

If Europe, a one-race region, can be divided into different countries, he says, there is nothing wrong in having two Chinas.

Ulufa'alu made the point in Parliament following a question raised by the MP for South Guadalcanal, Victor Ngele, as to whether the government considered severing diplomatic relations with the Republic of China (Taiwan) because of the continuing decline in Taiwan's global recognition.

Foreign Affairs Minister Patteson Oti says the Solomons will continue its diplomatic relations with the Republic of China because it is committed to the relationship.
