The United Nations and Americas Branch oversees the facilitation and the management of bilateral and multilateral relations between the Solomon Islands and the countries of North and South America as well as Solomon Islands interest within the United Nations and its subsidiary organizations.
On the UN multilateral front, the Branch together with our Permanent Mission to the UN in New York and in Geneva provides advice to the Ministry and to the government on UN matters, processes, and on issues of core interest to Solomon Islands Foreign Policy in the UN and its community of nations.
The Solomon Islands Government, through the UN & Americas Branch along with the Permanent Missions to the UN (both New York and Geneva) works closely with countries within the Small Island Developing States (SIDS), Pacific Small Islands Developing States (PSIDS), Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) and the Least Developing Countries (LDCs) Group on issues of likeminded interests. There are also other forums through which Solomon Islands seeks to garner support for issues that it wishes to pursue.
Given the wide range of issues that the United Nations deals with, the Desk works on issues ranging from Climate Change, the 2030 Development Agenda as well as UN Treaties and Conventions ranging from Human Rights to Arms and Small Arms and Lights Weapons to name but a few. The Branch further facilitates all bilateral relationship with countries (we have diplomatic relations with) in the North Americas, Latin Americas and the Caribbean region. The Branch stands as the Solomon Islands government entry point for receiving and facilitating of all diplomatic courtesies, bilateral negotiations and assistance that partner in the region wish to have or provide to the Solomon Islands. The desk also works in collaboration with the Solomon Islands Embassy in Havana on bilateral issues of interest with the Republic of Cuba.
