TEMPO.CO, JakartaIndonesian Military (TNI) Commander General Andika Perkasa and National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo met at the Police Headquarters on Tuesday, November 23. 

One of the subjects they discussed was the security approach in Papua.

“That's one of the things we talked about,” said Andika at the National Police Headquarters in Jakarta, Tuesday, November 23.

Andika said it is necessary to discuss the plan on the security approach with the National Police Chief since the police also have a duty to maintain security in the country’s easternmost province. 

He also claimed to have a detailed discussion on the plan with the National Police Chief. However, the TNI Commander stopped short of revealing the details to reporters.

Andika planned to visit Papua next week to explain the new security concept. “As I have promised during the fit and proper test,” he added.

Andika Perkasa's plan to change the security approach in Papua was conveyed when he underwent a fit and proper test at Commission I of the House of Representatives (DPR) on November 6, 2021. At that time, he pledged to apply a new approach in dealing with security issues in Papua.
