Letter: Remember US soldiers died in Solomon Islands

Totally independent of China’s alleged efforts to establish a military base in the Solomon Islands, it is reprehensible that the US “has not had a permanent diplomatic presence there since 1993”, as you report (April 23).

This is a disgrace to the memory of the thousands of US soldiers, sailors and marines who gave their lives in the Solomon Islands during the second world war.
