Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia on the Recent Situation in Myanmar, 19 March 2021, at Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
On behalf of the people of Indonesia and on my own behalf, I would like to express my deep condolences and sympathy to the victims and families of the victims due to the use of force in Myanmar.
Indonesia urges that the use of force in Myanmar must stop immediately so that there will be no more victims. The safety and welfare of the people must be the top priority.
Indonesia also urges that dialogue and reconciliation must be carried out immediately to restore democracy, to restore peace, and to restore stability in Myanmar.
I would like to immediately hold talks with Sultan of Brunei Darussalam as the Chair of the ASEAN to immediately hold the ASEAN high-level meeting to discuss the crisis in Myanmar.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
