The US is sending two top officials to the Solomon Islands following a visit last week by an Australian senator over concerns that China could establish a military presence there.

The White House said, Kurt Campbell, the National Security Council Indo-Pacific coordinator, and Daniel Kritenbrink, the assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, will lead a delegation of US government officials to the Solomon Islands, and will also visit Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
