Top US officials reportedly going to Solomon Islands to discuss Chinese security deal concerns

United States President Joe Biden is reportedly sending one of his top officials to the Solomon Islands as concerns mount over a soon-to-be-signed security deal with China.

Last month, a senior Australian defense figure warned that a Chinese naval presence in the strategically located Pacific nation would “change the calculus” for Australia’s military.

This week, two of Australia’s top intelligence officials, Australian Secret Intelligence Service boss Paul Simon and Director General of National Intelligence, Andrew Shearer, met with Prime Minister Manasseh Sogaware of the Solomon Islands.

According to the Financial Times, Kurt Campbell – who serves as the US National Security Council coordinator for the Indo-Pacific – will now also visit the small Pacific nation in April.
