Solomon Islands. According to
CountryAAH, the total population in Solomon Islands is 686,895 people in 2020.
The situation in the war-torn Solomon
Islands was relatively calm after the Australian-led
peacekeeping force arrived in 2003 to restore law and order,
following the mutual fighting between local militia groups.
However, a member of the peace force was shot dead, and
Australia decided to send more troops. Over 3,700 weapons
had been collected in a year, those responsible for the
previous chaos had been seized and new personnel had been
recruited to the previously collapsed local police force.
The country's economy also began to show signs of
recovery. The operation of the Peace Force was the largest
military operation in the South Pacific since World War II.
In addition to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Papua
New Guinea participated in the peace mission.
