PREMIUM President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said that the government would not use force to end the spiralling violence in Papua and West Papua that has claimed the lives of eight people.

“We have tried to solve the problem using a security approach, but that did not work. Now we will focus on the prosperity of our brothers and sisters,” he said at a Cabinet meeting in Jakarta on Thursday.
