New Guinea (area océanienne)
Formerly, all the North of the island was occupied by Germany, and was named New Guinea. The South-east of the island colonized by Australia bore the name of New Guinea. Today New Guinea includes/understands New Guinea in its entirety as well as the surrounding islands océaniennes (except the other islands indonésiennes in the East).
The area is divided into two parts occupied by two pays :
- the Eastern half of the island of New Guinea and the surrounding islands form the New Guinea-News-Guinea since its independence of Australia.
- the Western half of the island of New Guinea and the surrounding islands form the province of Papua (called before Irian Jaya ), in Indonesia (however Indonesia remains regarded as a country of Southeast Asia, even if this area is in Oceania).
