Solomon Islands forms ties with China after Taiwan break

China and former Taiwan ally the Solomon Islands established diplomatic ties on Saturday. In a setback for Taiwan, Beijing this week won over two previous Taiwanese allies - the Solomon Islands and Kiribati. US VP Mike Pence, in a show of displeasure, declined a request from the Solomon Islands leader to meet to discuss development partnerships after it cut ties with Taiwan.
