Jakarta, Jubi – The chairman of Commission I of the House of Representatives urged President Joko Widodo to formulate basic policies and a road map to conflict resolution in Papua.

“The formulation of basic policies and a road map to conflict resolution in Papua must be settled before taking a partial and sectoral policies,” Mahfudz Siddiq said in Jakarta on Monday (15/6/2015).

He said there were concerns that partial policies without a clear roadmap would fail.

Siddiq said that a policy to open “the door” for foreign journalists to come to Papua and the government’s proposal to grant amnesty or abolition for political prisoners in Papua could backfire if the root of the problem is not addressed.
“It’s worried that without a clear policy platform, those policies would become a blunder in the future,” he said.

He explained in the Meeting between the Commission I of the House of Representatives and State Intelligent Agency, BIN describes the current situation in Papua is relatively under control though the tension and actions taken by Free Papua Movement (OPM) are increasing.

He further said the Commission I of the House of Representatives agreed to ask the government to be extra careful in dealing with OPM. “There should be no statement or political decision made spontaneously by president without calculating its implications,” said Mahfudz Siddiq. (*/rom)
