INDUSTRY co.idIndonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) strongly condemned the acts of violence that occurred in Gaza, Palestine which have caused suffering and civilian casualties.

"Indonesia strongly condemns the acts of violence that occurred in Gaza because they have resulted in suffering and increasing numbers of civilian victims, including women and children," said the President in his statement during a working visit to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

In addition, Indonesia condemns Israel's attack on Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital which is a violation of international humanitarian law. The President also ordered Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to attend the extraordinary meeting of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) Foreign Ministers in Jeddah and continue to seek the evacuation of Indonesian citizens who are currently still hampered by field conditions.

“Indonesia will not remain silent watching civilian casualties continue to fall, seeing injustices against the Palestinian people that continue to occur. "Indonesia together with the OIC sends a strong message to the world to stop escalation, to stop the use of violence, to focus on humanitarian issues, and resolve the root of the problem, namely Israel's occupation of Palestine," he stressed.

The President invited world leaders to build global solidarity to resolve the Palestinian issue fairly and implement agreed international parameters.

"Indonesia will continue to voice this on various occasions and international forums, including bilaterally with the Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia and at the ASEAN-GCC Summit tomorrow," he concluded. (TGH/DNS)
