West Papuan prosecutor, Constantin Ansanay, said a peaceful resolution to conflict in the Indonesian annexed territory could come from other Pacific countries.
“There is much for us to learn from the situation in Fiji,” Ansanay said at the 17th Gereja Kristen Injili synod in Waisai, Raja Ampat.
“Likewise there are experiences from Papua which can help resolve or prevent conflict in the Pacific."
He pointed to the peace building programme at the Suva based Pacific Theological College as one avenue to conflict resolution.
“We must also remember that women and children are often victims of violence in the Pacific,” Ansanay said.
“Men and the church must take a lead role in stopping this.”
Ansanay said information sharing was critical to ending violence and creating peace.
He suggested that regional churches work together to share information and end conflict....PACNEWS
