US Warns of Response to CCP’s Military Base Attempt in Solomon Islands

On April 22, the United States warned the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that the United States would “respond accordingly” should the CCP establish a military base in the Solomon Islands.

After a delegation led by Kurt Campbell, the United States National Security Council Indo-Pacific coordinator, met with Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare and his cabinet, Sogavare reportedly assured that there would be no military bases on the Solomon Islands, a consistent message with his previous public statements.

The White House also issued a statement re-emphasizing that the U.S. will closely monitor developments with other partners in the region and that if the CCP takes steps to establish a substantially permanent military base or other military facilities, the U.S. will be seriously concerned and respond accordingly.
