“First of all, the Government and people of Indonesia would like to convey deep condolences over the death of President Raisi, in a shocking helicopter crash,” President said.

Concerning the impact of the tragedy to global economy, President hoped that the death of President Raisi would not affect global oil price which could also give impact to other commodity prices.
