Manuari acknowledges PM, WP support


Member of Parliament (MP) for West Makira Constituency acknowledges the consistent support shown by the solidarity group in the country for ULMWP’s (United Liberation Movement for West Papua) full membership in the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG).
Derek Manuarii reiterated his support while appreciating the efforts shown by Solomon Islanders towards ULMWP’s plea for full membership in MSG.

He said the focus now is on September next month in Vanuatu, where the next MSG meeting will take place.

In addition to his statement, Manuarii said Fiji and Papua New Guinea (PNG) must reconsider their position and do the right thing to save our Melanesian brothers and sisters, whom were long, suffered the human rights abuse by the Indonesian military.

He said although the provincial government of West Papua might not support ULMWP because they were bribed by Indonesia the people and communities of that Melanesian region support ULMWP.

Furthermore to his remarks he said the issue of human rights violation in West Papua must be addressed and ULMWP’s plea for full membership in MSG has to be accepted.

He finally thanked Prime Minister (PM) of Solomon Islands Manasseh Sogavare for his bold stand on the West Papua issue, adding PM is truly representing the position of the people of this country.
