AUSTRALIAN naval ships have played a critical role in providing assistance to protect the South Pacific marine realm from threats.
During the Royal Australian naval ship’s recent visit to the country the Australian High Commissioner to Solomon Islands HE Roderick Brazier said the assistance they have rendered is to protect the marine domain from threats.
“The assistance we are providing in the South of the Pacific is helping them to protect the marine time domain from transnational treats to your precious national environments,” said Brazier.
He said with this major role, they will soon be providing replacements for the Auki and Lata patrol boats to assist them (Australian naval ships) in protecting the waters.
“This for them (Auki and Lata Police) to help play a critical role in protecting the marine time domain,” said Brazier.
