DPRP Urges President to Hold Dialogue between Jakarta, Papua


Jayapura, Jubi – A member of the Papua Legislative Council ( DPRP) again questioned the commitment of President Joko Widodo to hold a peaceful dialogue between Jakarta and Papua.

Commission I member Ruben Magay said Jokowi needed to immediately hold a dialogue like his promise to the people of Papua as he celebrated Christmas in Papua last December.
“We question it. Jokowi should immediately keep his promise. Do not let the Papuan people lose trust in him, ” Ruben Magay said this week.

I hoped Jokowi would not be the same as the previous President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono who did not keep his promise until the end of his term.
“Dialogue is important to solve all the problems in Papua, If Jokowi is really serious about the dialogue, he should have a general picture of it like who would be invited and is there a third party? “he said.

Previously, member of DPRP Nioluen Kotouki also said the same thing. He said, President Jokowi has said it will implement a peace dialogue yet until now, there is no certainty when the agenda was done.
“Now the real question, when its implementation . There have been many Papuans arrested for being part of the armed groups, ” Kotouki said at that time. (Arjuna Pademme/ Tina)
