Jayapura, 2/6 (Jubi) – Papua Regional Secretary Herry Dosinaen said the central government needs to pay serious attention to border areas due to their complex issues.

“The central government needs to consider border areas such as Skouw, Boven Digoel and Pegunungan Bintang since local citizens have the equal tenure rights on the land both in our territory or the neighboring country. They are from the same tribes and have similar culture,” Dosinaen told a visiting delegation from the Presidential Advisory Council (Wantimpres) in Jayapura on Monday (2/6).

The provincial government urged Jakarta to establish a special ministry to deal with border issues, including security, politics and economics.

So far the provincial government has made efforts to deal with those issues in cooperation with all parties including the military and police.
