Pushback against Biden’s controversial remarks on cannibalism in Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape responded to US President Joe Biden’s comments about cannibalism during World War II in the region. Biden suggested that his uncle may have been eaten by cannibals after his plane crashed near New Guinea. Marape pushed back against this characterization, stating that Papua New Guinea does not deserve to be labeled as cannibals. He called for the US to help find the remains of those killed during World War II. The US Embassy in PNG addressed Biden’s comments, emphasizing respect for the people and culture of Papua New Guinea and commitment to recovering WWII remains.
