However, at the 1949 Dutch-Indonesian roundtable, both Indonesia and the Netherlands failed to agree on the status of New Guinea, with the Netherlands arguing that Western New Guinea should remain in place for the eventual self-determination of the natives once they are sufficiently “ripe”.  The resulting agreement was unclear on New Guinea`s final status, although the Dutch Workers` Party rejected an amendment that would explicitly exclude New Guinea from Indonesian independence.  Beginning in 1951, the Indonesian government interpreted the results of the Round Table Conference to restore sovereignty over all former Dutch East Indies, including New Guinea.  During negotiations with the Indonesians, the Netherlands stated that it could relinquish sovereignty over Dutch New Guinea because the conservative parties of the Dutch parliament, deeply humiliated by Indonesia`s independence and wishing to retain a colonial stronghold in the region, would not vote to ratify such an agreement.  When the Indonesian government withdrew from the Dutch-Indonesian Union, frustrated by the slow pace of talks on New Guinea, the Netherlands felt free of any obligation to continue negotiations on the issue.  Indonesia, supported by all African and Asian nations except nationalist China, attempted to pass a UN General Assembly resolution calling on the Netherlands to negotiate with it the status of Western New Guinea.
