Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia After Limited Cabinet Meeting on Palestine, Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, October 30, 2023
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I have just chaired a limited Cabinet meeting on Palestine.
Indonesia is very outraged about deteriorating situation in Gaza, particularly in terms of humanitarian situation. We are closely monitoring the recent situation in Gaza and Indonesia’s position is very clear and firm: we strongly condemn attacks on civilians and public facilities in Gaza.
The violence must stop, a ceasefire must continue to be sought, and humanitarian assistance must continue to be prioritized and to be accelerated. Indonesia also continues to communicate with many parties to take measures in addressing the situation.
Indonesia will send humanitarian assistance, in line with the requests and needs of the Palestinian people, and the first batch will be sent this week. The humanitarian assistance comes from the Government, business entities, and communities
That concludes my remarks.
I thank you.
Wassamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
