"We fully support the steps of President Joko Widodo and Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi who is working hard to help our brothers face the humanitarian tragedy in Myanmar," said Zulkifli at Parliament Building III, Jakarta, Monday (4/9/2017)

Zulkifli strongly condemns the acts of violence and murder of Rohingya civilians so that real action is needed, one of which is like President Jokowi.

According to him, the steps taken by the Indonesian government in seeking peace have been done so that it is just waiting for the international response.

"We just wait for the world's attitude toward the genocide and humanitarian tragedy in the region that befell women and children, and then their homes burned," he said.

Zulkifli, who is also Chairman of the DPP PAN, said what the Indonesian government is doing is very strategic because it is raising world support, such as in the UN, ASEAN and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to pressure Myanmar to stop the humanitarian crisis.

According to him, what happens in Rohingya should not be brought into the realm of religion, because Buddhists and Hindus in Indonesia condemn the humanitarian tragedy.

"I was once the Minister of Forestry, one Orang Utan and a dead tiger, a world of commotion, and what to the Rohingyas is the thousands who died from the humanitarian crisis," he said.

Earlier, President Joko Widodo requested that the Myanmar government stop violence against its citizens.

"This evening the Foreign Minister has traveled to Myanmar to ask the government of Myanmar to stop and prevent violence in order to provide protection to all citizens including Muslims in Myanmar and to provide access to humanitarian assistance," said President Joko Widodo at the Merdeka Palace on Sunday (3/9).

The president also expressed regret over the violence that occurred in Myanmar since two weeks ago and needs a real action not only criticism.

The President has appointed Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to establish intensive communication with various parties including with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Special Advisor to Rakhine State Kofi Annan.

Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi is scheduled to meet with the State Secretary of the United Republic of Myanmar Republic Aung San Suu Kyi who is also the leader of the National League for Democracy Party, Myanmar's parliamentary majority party on Monday (4/9) in Myanmar.
