Indonesia: Centre welcomes progress in Aceh talks

For Immediate Release


The Henry Dunant Centre, facilitators of the meeting between the Government of the Republic of Indonesia and the Free Aceh Movement, welcome the outcome of the talks, as represented in the Joint Statement.

Both parties worked hard to address key issues in order to make progress towards a peaceful solution to the conflict in Aceh, which has taken so many lives. The discussions were often difficult but both parties were motivated by a common desire to bring the conflict to a peaceful end and have agreed to continue meeting to reach this goal.
