INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Hanura Party Wings Organization, the People's Conscience Youth Movement (Gemura) said the United States's refusal of TNI Commander General Gatot Nurmantyo was an insult to Indonesia.

Oktasari said until now it has been proven that TNI is the state institution with the highest trust and credibility level in the eyes of the people portrayed from the last survey.

Gemura asked the Government in this case the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Indonesia to take firm by issuing diplomatic protest note with the highest level.

"Although the US ambassador has apologized but this is not enough, Gemura urged the relevant authorities in America in this case the US Kemenlu should give a detailed explanation to Indonesia because the people are now wondering," he said.

Gemura fully supports the TNI Commander who uses all the diplomatic channels through the government to settle this matter in dignity and honor as a great nation.
