“Some Papuan liberation groups will be invited, but Vanuatu chief (elders) will facilitate the process of Melanesian reconciliation.” he added.
The people of Vanuatu will provide a way for groups to unify. Vanuatu also will serve and assist any unification process if it is necessary, he says.
Andy Ayamiseba, representatives of West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL) in Vanuatu justified the reconciliation plan.
“The Government of Vanuatu will invite three major factions, are WPNCL, NRFPB and KNPB / Free West Papua Campaign to form an organization umbrella to submit a new application to MSG.” Andy Ayamiseba told tabloidjubi.com.
At the end of last June, the Melanesian Spearhead Groups (MSG) has rejected the membership application submitted by WPNCL. However at the same time, the leaders of MSG are asking for a new membership application filed by one umbrella organization and carried out in an integrated manner. (Jubi / Victor Mambor/ Tina)
