President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo admits that he has personally communicated with the President of the Palestine Mahmoud Abbas to express Indonesia’s stance concerning the statement of the President of the US Donald Trump who recognizes Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel.<>

“I have told the President of the Palestine, President Mahmoud Abbas, that Indonesia condemns the recognition of the US,” President Jokowi tells the journalists when he pays a working visit to Gunung Kidul Regency, DI Yogyakarta Province, Saturday (9/12) afternoon. According to the President, he also states that this recognition also contravenes with all resolutions of the UN’s Security Council on Palestine. Moreover, it also endangers the ongoing peace process.

Therefore, the President added, Indonesia invites all countries to unite to give support to Palestine.

“I also tell President Mahmoud Abbas that Indonesia asks other countries not to move their embassies to Jerusalem as done by the US,” President Jokowi says.

He also affirms that Indonesia will always support the struggle of the Palestinian people. (UN/ES) (MMB/YM/Naster)
