Meeting to be organised in PNG


A two-day border liaison meeting between Indonesia and PNG is to be organised in Port Moresby next month.
According to the head of the Papua border and foreign affairs office Suzanna Wanggai, the two countries would discuss, among other things, people-to-people cooperation.
Wanggai told the local media yesterday that the cooperation was expected to strengthen  relations between the people of both nations to encourage them to live peacefully side-by-side.
She noted that the two countries’ officials were scheduled to discuss an agreement on  development of infrastructure and economy.
They would also review an agreement on traditional border crossings because the current agreement is considered outdated.
The meeting will not cover security affairs because the topic has been placed on the agenda of a separate meeting.
However, the issue of additional border check-posts will be included next month.
