PAPUADAILY –Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menkopolhukam) Mahfud MD said the government is committed to continuing to strengthen the future development of Papua.

This was conveyed by Mahfud during a dialogue with the West Papua DPRD at the Kemenkopolhukam, Jakarta, Wednesday (30/6/2021). “The commitment to build a secure and prosperous future for the land of Papua must continue to be strengthened,” Mahfud said in a written statement, Wednesday (1/7/2021) night.

In this meeting, Mahfud emphasized that the steps taken by the government were to develop the welfare side. However, this welfare development can only be achieved if security really works. “So the emphasis is on welfare, and that welfare will be achieved if our security is built as well as possible,” said Mahfud.

Mahfud is determined to continue to oversee these aspirations. “There are 14 inputs, we accommodate them. Later, those that need to be processed will be processed, then some have been included in the bill, some can later be channeled to technical implementation and so on,” said Mahfud.
