Jakarta: The Papua Police announced, on Tuesday, that armed Papuan terrorists' security disturbances will not disrupt the hosting of the upcoming PON National Games and National Para Games.
Papua Police Chief Inspector-General Mathius Fakhiri appealed to participating athletes and officials to not worry, as some 8,000 security personnel will secure the country's biggest multi-sports events.
"The security situation in four regions that will co-host the PON National Games are far away from areas frequently disrupted by the armed Papuan separatist terrorists," Fakhiri said.
