Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Wiranto, after a meeting with the Executive Board of the Students (BEM) in jabodetabek, at Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Central Jakarta, Friday (09/29/2017).


Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Wiranto, acknowledged a petition calling for a vote for the determination of West Papua's fate.
The petition was submitted to the United Nations Decolonization Committee or Committee 24 in New York by the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP).
"There is indeed a group of separatists moving outside trying to convey the petition to the Chairman of Commission 24, the issue of decolonization," said Wiranto at Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, Central Jakarta, Friday (09/29/2017).
Wiranto also asserted that the petition was illegal, because the United Nations has declared the territory of West Papua as a part of Indonesia's sovereignty.
"It has been answered today that it is true to get the petition but it is illegal and can arise from anyone," said Wiranto.

Wiranto said that efforts to liberate the territory of West Papua will continue, by parties both inside and outside Indonesia. However, he asserted that West Papua has become a legitimate part Indonesia's sovereignty through a referendum process.
In 1969, the Act of Free Choice was implemented which declared that West Papua (now Papua and West Papua) entered the territory of Indonesia. The UN recognized the decision.
"Unlike East Timor, we claim that it is a legitimate territory after a referendum declared valid by the UN at that time," said the former ABRI Commander.

Build Papua

Wiranto also emphasized that the government has given more attention to the development process in West Papua.
Development planning through Bapennas, continued Wiranto, was realized holistically covering the fields of education, health, welfare, agriculture, electricity and transportation needs.
"So the point is that Indonesia has been accelerating the development of Papua and West Papua so that it will soon be same with other areas in progress, which is really planned and implemented by the government," said Wiranto.
"If there are free wishes exist, we admit but now the government is really to build Papua and West Papua," he said.
