INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Wiranto mentioned that Indonesia does not want to engage in conflict in the South China Sea (LTS) region.

Wiranto on the sidelines of the 32nd ASEAN Summit in Singapore on Saturday (28/4/2018) said that Indonesia encourages any country not to incite a conflict in the LTS region.

"Indonesia also does not want to get involved in conflict affairs in LTS," he said.

If any other country claims to have a conflict with Indonesia related to LTS, Wiranto insists Indonesia has no conflict in the region.

"I say there is no conflict, there is no question of the boundary between us and other countries," he said.

According to him, the spirit does not want to conflict that should continue to be maintained so that the area of ​​LTS remains safe and peaceful.

Indonesia also expects all parties directly interested in LTS to continue to comply with the Code of Conduct (CoC), which is structured to maintain peace in the region, although not yet fully agreed.

"Indonesia continually encourages the consent of CoC in every meeting including the ASEAN meeting or when the bilateral meeting between Indonesia and the countries involved we always say that Indonesia is pushing in that direction," he said.

Wiranto said the issue at LTS focuses on dispute resolution and directing the region to peace.

"How there is peace if dispute is still there, then the dispute is settled and then the result is peace," he said.

Wiranto is optimistic that every country does not want a continuous conflict because it will harm other countries.

Therefore, with approaches that promote dialogue, including bilateral approaches, he is optimistic that the issues in LTS can be resolved.
