7:41 pm on 22 July 2014

In Papua New Guinea's autonomous Bougainville region, the Mekamui faction has pledged its support to the autonomous provincial government to work together for Bougainville's greater good.

The Mekamui group's president, Philip Miriori, made the pledge during a reconciliation ceremony between Mekamui members of North and Central Bougainville.

The president of the Autonomous Government, John Momis, has expressed his satisfaction at the initiative.

He said the event was an indication of big things to come when Bougainville would finally unite and achieve its goal of self-determination.
