THE Western province government has called on the national government to improve border control and monitoring with the SI-PNG border.
Provincial secretary Jeffery Wickham says this should one of the national government’s priorities.
He highlights last week’s incident as a fine example that should send the message of the importance of border control to the national government.
“Western Province have for too long taken the brunt of continuous illegal incursions and we call on the national government must pull up its socks to quickly address matter.
“Effective border control and monitoring is paramount. We need national security policy development and progress to establishing a national coordinating mechanism for muilti-sectorial collaboration in border security.
“Our national government must consider and prioritize to addressing boarder issues rather than misusing of fundings.”
