THE SITUATION OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
QUICK FACTS #10
According to Article 1 of the Montevideo Convention, one of the four qualifying factors of a sovereign state is the capacity to enter foreign relations with other states.
After having spent years in conversations with diplomats from various countries (ambassadors, chargé d’affaires, attachés, counsels, deputy reps, secretaries, etc.), sharing our situation and learning of theirs, we have embarked on the next stage known as “visiting their capitals.” This means we have gotten to the point in our discussions where the diplomats are recommending we go and talk to their countries’ leaders — presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers… those who make decisions…
This is the stage where nation-to-nation bilateral discussions take place to develop relationships and talk strategies.
In the past I have met a number of heads of state usually at conferences, regional group meetings or at their missions at the UN or the EU. It has always been encouraging and productive.
My most recent diplomatic visit was two weeks ago in Apia, Samoa with Prime Minister Malielegaoi of the Independent State of Samoa. We discussed several matters of mutual interest. We also talked of the prospects of Samoa supporting two initiatives we are preparing for introduction at the United Nations in the Fall. His response was very positive.
The pace is beginning to pick up. In the next few months I will be visiting more of the Pacific as well as other regions.
Ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono. The sovereignty (life) of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.
