INDUSTRY.co.id - Kuala Lumpur- The Indonesian government immediately moved quickly to address the issue of the Indonesian flag overturned on the special souvenir of the 2017 SEA Games opening and demanded Malaysia to express diplomatic apologies.

"We have reported the matter to the President because we are here (Malaysia) so we have a duty to follow up because this is a symbol of the country, so I want a diplomatic solution," said Puan Maharani.

The impact of the reverse flag is now widespread in the media. In fact, now also has been circulating apologies from the Malaysian side. It's just that in the bilingual letters it is not signed by the authorities.

Puan asked the Malaysians to take the right steps. This is because the letter circulated widely through social media that only stated the Secretariat of Kuala Lumpur 2017 and the Malaysian Administrative Courts (MASOC).

"I've seen the letter, but I'm sorry the letter has no official signature who's responsible, so we're still waiting for official channels," Puan said.
