Papua New Guinea’s high commissioner to Solomon Islands left the country over the weekend after being terminated early last month.

Brian Yombon Kopio left the country on Saturday after receiving his termination letter early last month.

Reasons behind the termination of his contract were unknown.
But he said he will pursue the reasons for his recall.
“I don’t know for what reasons my contract was terminated. But I will follow this up to make sure reasons behind the termination of my contract are known,” Mr Kopio said.
Earlier he said his termination will disrupt some of the major projects he had put in place in the country.
“Like the PNG chancery building, it will be affected because I was the one who secured the funding. The introduction of rugby league in the country and the employment training programme which already benefited 32 Solomon Islanders,” Kopio added.
He said after taking the office in the country he had done his best to restore the reputation of the PNG high commission office and establish a good relationship between the two countries.
“I have tried my best shot to show pride and dignity of my country to the people of Solomon Islands,”Kopio said.
However he said it was so unfortunate that he had to leave.
Kopio stressed that is so sad that in past, PNG has sent retirees to the Solomon Islands to be their High Commissioners and that reflected in what they have done.
“But when I came on board, I shifted that around,” Kopio highlighted.
PNG government is yet to confirm his replacement.
