The danger of questioning the incorporation of Papua to Republic of Indonesia

J.L. Brierly: “The political organs of the United Nations, the Council and Assembly, have had their almost constant occupation in handling of breaches of the peace and threats to the peace in one part of the world or another:…Indonesia,…, to mention only some of the more conspicuous examples. In handling these dangerous situations the United Nations has bent its energies for the most part to bringing the hostilities to an end and containing the danger within narrow limits, without pronouncing on the legality or illegality of the states concerned”.
