President Jokowi also appealed to economic leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in San Fransisco, USA on Friday (11/17) to do the same and urged APEC leaders to stop the war, call for a ceasefire, and ensure that humanitarian aid for the people of Gaza can be delivered without hindrance.
