INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi said it was monitoring the health of former President BJ Habibie routinely twice a day.

Minister of Retno at the Presidential Palace Complex in Jakarta on Monday (5/3/2018) said that the monitoring of health condition of the 3rd President of RI BJ Habibie has been done since Habibie was taken to Starnberg Clinic, Munchen, Germany on Friday March 2nd, 2018.

"Since we were hospitalized, we always monitor through the representatives in Germany, every day communicate directly to the team in Munchen twice, ie, wake up (morning) and the night before bed I communicate again," said Retno.

He himself admitted that he had communicated directly with both BJ Habibie team and Habibie personally.

Former Minister of Research and Technology, said Retno, had asked him to chat and preach if his condition remained in good condition.

"Even I have also communicated directly with his team (Habibie) and Pak Habibie directly, Mr. Habibie said he is still in good condition, hopefully he will recover soon," he said.

The third Indonesian president was diagnosed with a leak in the heart valve.

Habibie's heart-leak pain was similar to that of Ainun, Habibie's wife.

The pain caused water to accumulate in Habibie's lungs up to 1.5 liters so that he also found it difficult to breathe in addition to rising blood pressure up to 180 mmHg.
