Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin told reporters that Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Solomon Islands counterpart Jeremiah Manele signed the agreement in recent days and one of the purposes is to maintain the social order in that country.

According to the official, the document also includes the protection of lives and properties, provision of humanitarian assistance and response to natural disasters.

The two countries signed the agreement following the violent anti-government protests recorded in Honiara, the capital and home to 90 percent of nearly 3,000 Chinese residents in the island territory, in late 2021.

During the events, more than 100 stores and other businesses in Honiara’s Chinatown were being targeted and suffered extensive damages.

China and Solomon Islands established diplomatic relations in September 2019, after the latter territory severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan.
