The Federal Republic of West Papua is a peace-loving State which accept the obligations contained in the present UN Charter and able and willing to carry out these obligations.

5. West Papua is international issue not Domestic issue

Indonesia government always ignored and overridden that West Papua issue is as a domestic issue. Indonesia always claimed that West Papua is domestic issue while ignoring that involvement of the United Nations, the United States and Kingdom of Netherlands into West Papua occupied by Indonesia on General Assembly Resolution: 2504 on December 19, 1969. This was not absolute that West Papua will not independence from Indonesia in future. Reality is West Papua had formed the Federal Republic of West Papua and sought and pursued international political recognition.

Referring to the rectify history of international fora involvement in West Papua, now West Papua as international issue again in the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF), Africa Caribbean Pacific (ACP) States group and the United Nations. So the Indonesia government has to understand it and is willing to negotiate with officials of the Federal Republic of West Papua that are mediated by a UN Security Council representative.

6. International Level Negotiation

Officials of the Federal Republic of West Papua offering a peace negotiation between Indonesia and West Papua that mediate by a UN Security Council representative. We propose senior level negotiation mediated by the United Nations Security Council.

Main Agenda of the Negotiation

  1.  Main agenda of the negotiation is recognition and the transfer of the Power from the State of the Republic Indonesia to the State of the Federal Republic of West Papua shall be carried out in an orderly transition in PEACE under the auspices of the United Nations PeaceKeeping Force
  2.  Safety and protection of the Papuans negotiation team by Indonesia, United States and the United Nations.

7. Negotiation to Solve the Problems


West Papua is an international issue and not a domestic issue. We need to solve this with involvement by the international fora or/ and the United Nations like the Act of Free Choice or Act of No Choice was in 1969. Indonesia always overrides and ignores to national level and international level dialogue or international level negotiation with West Papua. Sometimes Indonesia government claims that the West Papua issue is a domestic issue and not an international issue.

Indonesian Minister for Foreign Affairs Mrs. Retno Marsudi dated 31 June 2020 that Indonesia was overwhelmed about West Papua in international fora like Pacific, Europe, USA, Canada, Africa and Latin America.

8. Indonesia has totally failed in West Papua:

1. Special Autonomy for West Papua from 2001 and end in 2021, during 20 years has totally failed.
2. We had restored and formed the Federal Republic of West Papua at the Third Papua People Congress in 2011 to replace Special Autonomy for independence from Indonesia.
3. Political peace negotiation between the Republic of Indonesia and the Federal Republic of West Papua will be conducted in a neutral country and mediated by the UN Security Council.
4. West Papua issue is a Political issue and may never be an Indonesian military approach in West Papua


9. Purpose and objectives of the Peace Negotiation

1. Indonesia thinks big, be generous and grant West Papua independence.
2. Purpose and objectives of the peace negotiation between Officials of the Provisional Government of the Federal Republic of West Papua and Officials of the Republic of Indonesia to boost both relation and recognition of each other like East Timor.
3. Many Indonesians Transmigration and immigration had allocated throughout the entire land of West Papua who need negotiation to determine their future in Indonesia and West Papua.
4. The cooperation further for bilateral relations that will be poured in various scripts is required like agreement between Indonesia and Timor Leste

10. Negotiation Team

1. When the Indonesian government is willing and ready for politically serious negotiation with West Papua, we will determine our number of negotiators team.
2. Negotiation team will mix/ unify with Papuan living in diaspora and from West Papua.


11. Mediator of Negotiation

West Papua is an international issue so we need to resolve this issue within an international fora. West Papua hopes and relies on the involvement of the United Nations, United States of America and Kingdom of Netherlands into this negotiation.

We propose to the United Nations Security Council as mediator to mediate the negotiation between Officials of the Federal Republic of West Papua and Officials of the Republic of Indonesia.
We propose Malaysia from East Asia and New Zealand from the Pacific Islands Forum, Sweden, Norway and Denmark from Europe and South Korea from Southeast Asia can become host of negotiation.

Process of the negotiation between Indonesia and West Papua is a round table negotiation. This negotiation is to find the best way for guarantee, relation and create a peaceful future for the two nations.

12. Negotiation Process

Officials of the Federal Republic of West Papua submit this proposal to Indonesia government for offering peace negotiation into the Indonesia version. This proposal to respond to a statement from Indonesian Minister for Foreign Affairs Mrs. Retno Marsudi dated 30 June 2020, she proposed to Indonesia government for dialogue with West Papua.

When the Indonesia government is willing and ready to negotiate with Papua, we may assume that the President of the Republic of Indonesia officially appoints a special envoy to prepare for the negotiation process from Indonesia side as we will do simultaneously for West Papua.

13. Political Recognition and Transfer the Power

That further recognition and the transfer of the Power from the State of Indonesia to the State of West Papua shall be carried out in an orderly transition in PEACE under the auspices of the United Nations Peace Keeping Force.
