Chair of the Melanesian Spearhead Group, Prime Minister Hon. Manasseh Sogavare has welcomed Indonesia’s ‘generous’ assistance towards Fiji’s recovery effort from Cyclone Winston.
Office of the Prime Minister says an Indonesian Government delegation led by the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, General Luhut Pandjaitan presented a cheque of FJD$10 million to the Fijian Prime Minister in Suva, last Friday.
The MSG Chair and Solomon Islands Prime Minister greeted Indonesia saying the generous contribution demonstrates a clear need for the MSG to hold on to the core values of self-determination for West Papua.
These core values were agreed upon by the MSG Leaders in Noumea, New Caledonia in 2014.
The PMO says the visit by Indonesia is a sign of increasing solidarity of the MSG member countries.
