In a meeting with the theme of "National Insight" attended by thousands of religious and community leaders, General Gatot asked the community to participate in reducing the potential for conflict and no seeds of the seeds of division arose.

Quoting the statement of President Joko Widodo, he reminded the public to strengthen unity and unity in the frame of Bhinneka Tunggal Ika to defend the sovereignty and integrity of NKRI.

"The key is Pancasila as the basis of state as well as ideology of the nation, because Pancasila is formulated with the divine value agreed by the religious leaders in the early independence," he said.
