“We strongly reject the false, baseless, and misleading allegations that continue to be nurtured by Vanuatu,” Sindy said.
“They create false and empty hopes, and trigger conflict…unfortunately at the cost of innocent lives,” he added in a Foreign Ministry YouTube show, Sunday (26/9/2021).
According to Sindy, Vanuatu continues to use the UN General Assembly forum to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other member states. Vanuatu has repeatedly tried to question Papua’s unquestionable status as an integral part of Indonesia.

The small country in the Pacific, said Sindy, continued its ill-intentioned and politically motivated aggression against Indonesia.
“This violates the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and is contrary to the Declaration of Principles of International Law on Friendly Relations and Cooperation between States,” said Sindy.
“We cannot allow repeated violations of the UN Charter to continue in this forum,” said Sindy.
Sindy stated that Indonesia is a pluralistic country with a dynamic democracy, and respects the rule of law, good governance, and social justice. Indonesia has also fulfilled its commitment to promote and protect human rights.
“Open your eyes see the whole picture. See it all or you will get lost,” he said.
