West Papua which unilaterally declared independence from Indonesia on October 19, 2011 at the Third Papua People’s Congress in Jayapura Capital of the State of the Federal Republic of West Papua. We formed the Provisional Government and run the administer throughout the entire land of Papua and made public announcement of the provisional government  on July 31, 2018  namely Central government consists of 23 Cabinet Ministers and State Institutions, 10 Provinces, 70 Regencies 10 municipalities and 3 Special Areas.  We almost 90% control the territory of West Papua.  West Papua categorized as statehood is a threshold criteria for admission to the UN membership   and not insurgent anymore that always stigmatizes by Indonesia authority.


Indonesia is part of the UN member and knows exactly about UN Charter and Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of State. The basic characteristics of a state are: It has people no matter how many or how diverse they are from each other, It has land no matter the size, but it should be enough to accommodate its inhabitants, It has sovereignty enabling it to independently carry out its policies, It has a government to manage and allow the state to establish its sovereignty and UN Charter Chapter II: Membership article 4 no.1. Membership in the United Nations is open to all other peace loving states which accept the obligations contained in the present Charter. The State of the Federal Republic of West Papua is peace-loving state which accept the obligation contained in the present UN Charter. We are able and willing to carry out these obligations, a move that would confer international recognition of Papuan statehood.


Whether Indonesia can undermine the UN Charter and First paragraph of the Preamble to the Indonesian Constitution of 1945 on West Papua and carry out this UN Charter and First paragraph of the Preamble to the Indonesian Constitution of 1945 to firmly support and recognize independence of Palestine? West Papua has a same right like Palestine. West Papua state is seeking and pursue collective recognition from global and regional forum and seek and pursue recognize form member countries of the United Nations. That further recognition and orderly and Peaceful transition and 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.  West Papua statehood does not have and will not have any problem with Indonesia but Indonesia has big problem with West Papua. Indonesia has to learn from independence of Timor Leste. Indonesia lost Timor Leste and as soon as also will lose West Papua.


Indonesia had allocated more transmigration and immigration in West Papua. The State of the Federal Republic of West Papua will protect all citizens include Indonesian people and foreigners who wish to become citizens of West Papua ensuring their safety and freedom from the point of independence onwards. Citizenship of the State of the Federal Republic of West Papua will progress the development and support of the State of the Federal Republic of West Papua. Government of the State of the Federal Republic of West Papua will serve and protects its citizenship. The State of the Federal Republic of West Papua works according to international mechanisms and rules   and will establish bilateral relation with the other member countries of the United Nations.

But if Indonesia authority does not respect and recognize independence of West Papua, we will make consider all Indonesian people in West Papua to become citizenship or let all of them back to Java.


Elected President Forkorus Yaboisembut had sent some Offering Peace Negotiation Letters to former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) and President Joko Widodo (JOKOWI). Like former Prsident SBY, President Jokowi had overridden to respond those letters. Indonesia also had rejected to constructive dialogue with leaders of the Pacific Islands Forum and it claims that you meddle in internal affairs. Whether Indonesia also meddle in internal affairs of Israel on Palestine or not?
