"Especially in the field of economy, Indonesia implements 'zero tariff' for a number of Palestinian products to Indonesian market," Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said at the Annual Press Statement of Foreign Minister 2018 in Jakarta on Tuesday (9/1/2017).

"Once again, Palestine is at the heart of Indonesia's foreign policy, and in every breath of Indonesian diplomacy, there is a struggle for Palestine," she said.
On that occasion, the Minister of Foreign Affairs again called on countries in the world to continue to provide support for the Palestinians.
