1) House reminds British legislators to take hands off Papua

A- A A+
The House of Representatives urged the government to officially ask the United Kingdom to not interfere with affairs in Papua, Indonesia’s easternmost province.
House deputy speaker Priyo Budi Santoso said that Indonesia’s legislature was deeply disappointed with the British parliament, whose members supported the Separatist Free Papua Movement (OPM) in Oxford.
"I think the UK has interfered too much with Indonesia's affairs. I would like to remind the UK government that they also have issues with Northern Ireland. I suppose they would not be happy if Indonesia encouraged Northern Ireland separatist sentiments. Therefore, please show some respect," Priyo said at his office on Monday.
Protests against the UK have been mounting since late last week as Oxford's mayor and a member of the UK parliament reportedly attended a ceremony to set up an OPM office in Oxford that was arranged by UK-based Papuan exile Benny Wenda.
Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa summoned British ambassador to Indonesia Mark Canning on Monday to further discuss the issue.
Meanwhile, newly elected Papua Governor Lukas Enembe is also expected to meet with House leaders today to discuss separatist sentiments in the province, particularly following the opening of the OPM office in Oxford.

The British Ambassador to Indonesia, Mark Canning, reiterated on Monday the position of the British government respecting the territorial integrity of Indonesia, and did not support calls for Papuan independence.
"We regard West Papua as being part of Indonesia. That has always been our view, and this recent development does nothing to change that," Canning said as quoted by Antara news agency.
He was summoned by Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa, on Monday, following the opening of a Free West Papua office in Oxford, on April 28.
“The minister conveyed to me in clear terms the strong concern of the Indonesian government on the opening of a Free West Papua office in Oxford,” said Canning after the meeting.
During the meeting, Canning explained to Marty that the British government recognized the sensitivity of the issue for Indonesia.
"We also support the efforts of the Presidential Delivery Unit [UKP4] who are addressing the problems of West Papua and hope to see it enjoy the same level of peace, stability and prosperity as the other parts of this nation. I made these points to Papua Governor Lukas Enembe when we met last week," said Canning.
“We believe that the Indonesian government is genuinely committed to addressing the problems in that region and hope that the efforts will bear fruit," he added.
The Indonesian government has asked its UK counterpart to be consistent in its policy of not supporting any actions related to the separatist movement in Papua and West Papua.
The office has been opened by the Free West Papua campaign, which is led by British-based Papuan exile Benny Wenda, with the support of the International Parliamentarians for West Papua (IPWP) group. (asw/ebf)
