The western part of New Guinea was part of the Dutch East Indies, but had remained outside the transfer of sovereignty to Indonesia at the end of 1949. The Indonesian leader Sukarno wanted to annex Dutch New Guinea as soon as possible. From 1950 onwards, the 'last part of Indië' was the focus of a long-running conflict between the Netherlands and Indonesia, which became more militarily effective around 1960.
