President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, on Monday (01/11), held a bilateral meeting with Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša on the sidelines of the COP26 Climate Conference in the Scottish city of Glasgow.

President Jokowi expressed his appreciation to PM Janša for his ongoing commitment to strengthening Indonesia-Slovenia and Indonesia-European Union (EU) relations.

The President conveyed that efforts to strengthen the Indonesia-EU cooperation had also been discussed with France as the holder of the next EU presidency and the President of the European Council.

The Slovenian PM stated that Slovenia pays great attention to Indonesia. “Indonesia has great economic potential, so it is important for the European Union to pay greater attention to Indonesia,” he said.

On the occasion, President Jokowi expressed hope that Slovenia would push for the completion of the Indonesia-EU Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IEU-CEPA). In addition, the President also addressed related environmental issues.

“On environmental cooperation, I regret that there is still discriminative treatment by the European Union against Indonesia’s sustainable palm oil,” the President remarked. (Presidential Secretariat/UN) (FI/MUR)
