The move by the ABG President Hon James Tanis to open an office for the President in Arawa has been welcomed.
General of the Mekamui Defence Force, Chris Uma, has issued a statement supporting the move and at the same time guaranteeing the safety of the President and his staff.
Mr Uma’s group, which has been operating outside the Bougainville Peace Agreement, called on the ABG to establish quickly in Arawa.
He said his group wholeheartedly welcomed the move and would be working closely with the ABG to establish peace and normalcy in Arawa and Bougainville as a whole.
New Dawn FM understands that discussions are taking place to reconcile Mr Uma and his team with Ishmael Toroama and his ex combatants.
The first big reconciliation will be held at Panguna when preparations have been completed.
