Statement of the Government of the Republic of Indonesia on Oxford City Council Award

  1. Indonesia appreciates the UK Government’s firm position that consistently supports the sovereignty and integrity of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia and therefore the action taken by Oxford City Council does not have any impact on the relationship between the two countries.
  2. Indonesia strongly criticizes Oxford City Council’s decision to grant an award to Benny Wenda, a Papuan separatist activist with a number of criminal records in Papua.
  3. This award shows Oxford City Council’s failure to understand the person’s track record and the actual condition, development, and improvement in Papua and West Papua.
  4. Indonesia will still be strongly against separatism and will not back down in fighting for the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.
