This was the message from senior statesman Sir Arnold Amet.
His message was relayed by Member for Madang Brian Kramer at the School of Natural and Physical Sciences forum at UPNG’s main lecture theatre recently.
Kramer, who was just there as an observer, relayed Sir Arnold’s written speech as he was unable to attend the forum.
Sir Arnold says the Karkar Island, where he comes from, is located in the western part of the Bismarck Sea. Therefore, he and the islanders are pledging their support in the stand against the development of seabed mining.
