Papua New Guinea Government has opened the doors for West Papuan refugees in Papua New Guinea to apply for citizenship or refugee status.
Minister for Foreign Affairs and Immigration Rimbink Pato said PNG Government had approved the move because " PNG is rightly proud of our humanitarian tradition of helping those in need".
The West Papuans refugies have been hampered by having no official status in PNG, no identity documentation and no rights to work. The decision will move people out of this limbo and enable them to obtain all of the rights and responsibilities of Papua New Guinea citizenship. Pato said.
