President Joko Widodo denounced a US unilateral action plan regarding the transfer of the US Embassy to Jerusalem. When opening the Trilateral Meeting of Indonesian Ulama, Afghanistan and Pakistan at the Bogor Palace, West Java, Friday President Joko Widodo called on other countries not to move their embassies to Jerusalem.

“We are holding the trilateral clerical meeting amidst the world’s concern, especially the Islamic world related to the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem. Indonesia strongly condemns this decision. This transfer decision violates the resolution of the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly. Therefore, I urge the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly to discuss the issue and take the next step. I also ask other countries not to follow the transfer of their embassies to Jerusalem. The move also disrupted the peace process and also threatened the peace itself. We with the people of Indonesia will fight with the Palestinian people and Palestine will always be in the breath of diplomacy Indonesia,” the President said.
