Indonesia Maximizes All Lines to Support Palestinian People

Banten, MINA – Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi emphasized that Indonesia will continue to do everything possible on all fronts to help the Palestinian people.

“Indonesia also continues to urge the UN Security Council to take concrete steps to stop all violence and bring justice and protection to Palestine,” said the Foreign Minister on Wednesday afternoon, at Soekarno Hatta Airport, Tangerang, Banten.

Not only at the UN, Indonesia also proposed that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) be able to immediately hold a special meeting to discuss this.
