Last week, we talked about where the New York agreement was concluded on August 15, 1962. It`s at Villa Huntland Middlleburg, Virginia, USA. Where in the meeting that began from March 23 to August 15, 1962, without Papua. Thus, the United States forced the Dutch government to hand over Western Papie to the Republic of Indonesia. In addition to the pressure on the Dutch government, the US government attempted to address President Sukarno. Sukarno was invited to visit Washington (USA) in 1961. In 1962, President John Kennedy`s personal envoy, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, made a counter-visit to Indonesia to imply the U.S. desire to support Sukarno in efforts to annex Western Palea. Given that Commander Korem 172`s work area includes other districts outside Merauke District, it is urgent to suspect that secret letters containing roughly the same content will be sent to other regents. In 1967, Freeport-McMoRan (an American company) signed a contract with the Indonesian government for the opening of a copper and gold mine in the Bintang Mountains, In western Pappua. Freeport began operating in 1971.

The second employment contract was signed on 30 December 1991. The United States` interest in the Western Pope, characterized by the signing of an employment contract between Freeport and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia, has become a reality. This occurred two years before the implementation of PEPERA in 1969 in West Pappua. There is a legal discrepancy here, because the Western Dad from 1962 to 1969 can be considered a controversial area. The Netherlands is under American pressure (see Jhon F. Kennedy`s letter to Yoseph Luns, the Dutch Foreign Minister) and Indonesia has received a positive American response (see Robeth Kennedy`s visit to Jakarta and Jhon F Kenedy`s letter to Sukarno), which showed us that America, which should play the role of mediator , has expanded its role, and not only as a mediator for the meeting of the two belligerents. , but behind its role, America also played the first part in the case of the New York Agreement August 15, 1962 in its favor. Both to counter Indonesia`s accession to the Soviet network and to control Papua`s natural wealth through Indonesia.
