Terrorism is a mutual enemy which must be countered together. Not only the Indonesian Police and the Military, but the people must play the role to overcome the real threats. It was said by Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu at the Gathering with Media in Jakarta on Monday (14/5) in addressing terrorism action and several bombing occurred in Surabaya East Java recently.
“So, the first threat is terrorists. It is the real threat that can happen anytime. Beginning in 2017 Indonesia is now facing the 3rd generation of terrorists, the first group namely Al-Qaeda exploded the World Trade Center in the US, then the ISIS in Iraq and Syria. We are now facing the 3rd generation of terrorists who claimed themselves as ISIS Indonesia, ISIS Malaysia, and ISIS Philippine. Therefore, two years ago I made trilateral cooperation of Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippine to localize the terrorists,” Ryamizard Ryacudu said.
Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu further said that terrorism is the real and serious threat for Indonesia. Therefore, countering terrorism can not use usual step, but it must be overcome seriously and do not be related with human rights issue. (VOI/AF/NT)
