West Papua can apply for Melanesian Spearhead Group observer status

West Papua will have the opportunity to apply for observer status within the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG), but as part of the group representing Indonesia.

The new MSG Director General Peter Forau, has told Radio Vanuatu that MSG foreign ministers agreed to allowing West Papua to apply for observer status after meeting last week.

Indonesia was granted observer status at the last MSG summit in Fiji in March.
