Ternate, dpd.go.id - Vice Chairman of DPD RI, Nono Sampono said the values of local wisdom that is still relevant to the development of the time must be maintained. It is part of an effort to strengthen the country's cultural and ideological resilience.

"The presence of the Republic of Indonesia can not be separated from the struggle and sincerity of the Sultanate and the Kingdom of the Archipelago who inaugurated his territory to join in a NKRI," he said when giving a speech at Forum Silaturahmi Keraton se-Nusantara (FSKN) in Pendopo Kedaton Sultanate, Ternate, North Maluku (30/3).

Moreover, he continued, the existence of Royal Palace of Ternate shows how it was influential in the 13th to 19th centuries. The influence of the Sultanate of Nusantara in international politics at that time can be seen from the diplomatic relations that exist between the Sultanate Archipelago with various Sultanate and Kingdom in Asia and Europe such as China, Arabic and Turkish.

"In the theory of international relations, diplomacy relations can only be established between countries that are equally sovereign and have the same political interests," Nono emphasized.

Apart from that, this Maluku senator explained that the welfare and justice in Indonesia today is still far from expectations. But, we must remain optimistic, that Indonesia today should be better than Indonesia in the past. "Indonesia in tomorrow must be better than Indonesia in this day," he said.

In addition, the DPD RI with the right of initiative is fighting for several Draft Law (Bill) that will be changed into Law (Act); among others the Bill on Archipelago and the Bill on Recognition and Protection of Indigenous Peoples Rights. "Thus communities in the archipelago and indigenous peoples can feel the presence of the state," Nono said.

Nono hoped with the enactment of the Bill on Archipelago and the Bill on Recognition and Protection of Indigenous Peoples Rights. Communities within the Provincial and Regency Islands will be able to benefit from accelerating the equity of development in various sectors. "Especially the health sector, education sector and transportation sector," he said.

Vice Chairman of DPD RI also expected that indigenous people’s rights will be recognized by the state, such as land ownership rights, either individual or communal, as well as the right of communal land and the right to get educational services rooted in local wisdom.
