Honiara, STEP MAGAZINE - Solomon Islands should support West Papua application to join the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) because it will make way for sub-regional group to seriously deal with the fate of the people of West Papua.

Secretary General of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP) Octovianus Mote made these comments in an exclusive interview along with the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation (SIBC) this week.

"After we became a member of the MSG, MSG leaders really created a place or places where Indonesia and West Papua can sit together to think about what the best way to solve the problem of West Papua," said Mote told SIBC.

He added that it was important that West Papua joined MSG because it will be the beginning of a process of lasting peace in West Papua and West Papua's hoping to get political independence.

"We will not get independence right away but this is a starting point and create peace in West Papua. Once peace is made it will be important for Papua New Guinea and throughout Melanesia," he said. (Princess Papua / SIBC / MS)
