The aircraft is in Port Vila to deliver a consignment of military equipment for the Vanuatu police force under and arrangement made 2 years ago.

Vanuatu also hosts an office of the West Papuan freedom movement which has been struggling for independence from Indonesian rule.

Presenter: Sam Seke
Speaker: Arthur Coulton, Vanuatu's deputy police commissioner
COULTON: I have to say I received that information from our surveillance officers at the airport that they are picketing. I'm not sure whether it is organised or not but there are people out there picketing outside the VIP lounge on the arrival of the Indonesian military airplane, which arrived just a while ago.

SEKE: And what's that Indonesian military aircraft doing there?
COULTON: It is delivering goods for the Vanuatu police force, goods and equipment for the Vanuatu police force, which was arranged through the Ministry of Internal Affairs, I think that's the purpose of the military aircraft here in Port Vila. So it's delivering goods and logistics for the Vanuatu police force.
