Furthermore, Admiral TNI Yudo Margono also confessed that apart from pursuing KST in Papua, his party is also continuing to carry out various kinds of territorial programs aimed at continuing to help the community.

Listyo Sigit Prabowo admitted that the existence of disturbances to security and public order (Kamtibmas) carried out by KST in Papua still occurs frequently so that it can have an impact on the development that is being carried out in the area.
