The Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that the Palestinian issue will always be prioritized in its foreign policies throughout 2019 amid Indonesia’s role in the United Nations’ Security Council. This was stated by Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi in Jakarta Wednesday (09/01.2019). She noted the Indonesian Government is deeply concerned with the shift in political stance of several countries on the Palestinian issue, as it opposes the United Nations` resolutions that should, in fact, be respected and serve as foundations for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. One of the countries that has changed its political stance on the Palestinian issue is the United States, which has moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. However, she emphasized, this reality will never make Indonesia recede its support for the Palestinians. Instead, Jakarta will continue to be on the forefront to help the people of Palestine achieve the goal pursued through their relentless struggles. Marsudi reiterated Indonesia`s support for a two-state solution as the only way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and as a corridor for creating peace. (ANTARA)
