INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- The Indonesian government expressed concern about the development of the situation in Syria after the United States and its allies fired more than 100 missiles in Syria after the chemical warfare that also occurred in the country.
It was submitted in a press statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia received in Jakarta, Saturday (14/4/2018)
"Indonesia is deeply concerned about the developments taking place in Syria, and last week Indonesia expressed strong criticism of the use of chemical weapons in Syria by any party," the Foreign Ministry said.
To that end, the Government of Indonesia appealed to all parties to refrain and prevent the security and safety situation in Syria getting worse.
In addition, the Government of Indonesia affirms to all parties to respect the value and international law, in particular the United Nations Charter of international security and peace.
Furthermore, the Government of Indonesia also asks all parties to maintain the security and safety of civil society, especially the safety of women and children should always be a priority.
The Indonesian government also re-emphasized the importance of resolving the conflict in Syria comprehensively through negotiations and peaceful means.
US President Donald Trump has ordered the implementation of an attack on Syria by targeting chemical weapons users following last week's toxic gas attack, which killed at least 60 people.
Trump said a joint operation between the United States and France and Britain was moving towards the target and that they were ready to continue that action until Syria suspended the use of chemical weapons.
"I have just ordered the United States Armed Forces to conduct a precise attack against targets related to Syrian dictator's chemical weapons capabilities Bashar al-Assad," Trump said in a televised address from the White House. When Trump spoke, a number of explosions were heard in Damascus.
