“We believe strongly that dialogue between Papuan representatives and the Indonesian government would help address concerns the Papuans have and assist in resolving conflicts peacefully”.
“Of course we deplore violence of any sort in Papua and when it does occur there should be full and transparent investigations under the rule of law.”
“Urged implementation of Indonesia’s 2001 declaration of autonomy for the troubled region”.
“We support the territorial integrity of Indonesia and that includes Papua and West Papua provinces.”
“We think that there has been an enormous amount of good work done by the Indonesian government and we’re going to continue to work with them and raise issues as that becomes necessary”.
