West Papua separatists unhappy with Vanuatu's relationship with Indonesia

Updated 16 May 2012, 17:15 AEST

The Vanuatu based West Papua Liberation movement is worried the government of Sato Kilman is looking to strengthen its relationship with Indonesia at its expense.

The concerns come following diplomatic meetings between the two countries, and the delivery of computers and vehicles there on Tuesday by an Indonesian airforce plane.

Traditionally Vanuatu has been a provider of sanctuary for those pushing for independence in Indonesia's West Papua Province.

The West Papuan separatists are worried this is about to change.
