The Biketawa declaration, issued by Pacific islands Forum leaders at their meeting in Kiribati in 2000, is one of the most worthwhile regional political developments of recent years, according to the outgoing Secretary-General of the Pacific Islands Forum, Noel Levi.

Mr Levi flys out of Fiji on Tueasday after completing a six year term at the helm of the region's premier political organisation. The Biketawa declaration was developedin the wake of coups in Fiji and Solomon Islands and makes it possible for members of the Forum to call on their colleagues to help uphold democratic principles.
