Indonesia: Attacks on Monitoring Offices

The United States deplores recent attacks on district offices of the Joint Security Committee (JSC) implementing the Aceh ceasefire and threats against Security Committee monitors. We call on the Government of Indonesia to fulfill its responsibility to protect the monitors and safeguard the peace process. We urge the Government of Indonesia to investigate the recent incidents and punish those responsible.

We continue to support the peace process in Aceh. The Cessation of Hostilities Agreement has succeeded in dramatically reducing violence in Aceh.
