Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) Foreign Affairs ministers and representative of the Front de Liberation Nationale Kanak et Sociaiste (FLNKS) met Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa in Jakarta, Indonesia yesterday.

An Information Ministry statement yesterday said the MSG group was part of a fact-finding mission to Indonesia and its West Papua and Papua Provinces in connection with the application by a political group called the West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL) for membership of the MSG.

The delegation, headed by Fiji's Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, will also visit project sites and organisations to observe socioeconomic developments taking place in Indonesia.

Indonesia is an observer of the MSG.
