Indonesia condemns U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital

Indonesian president regrets Jerusalem capital decision

The Foreign Ministry has condemned the decision by United States President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying that as a democratic country, "the U.S. should know what democracy means". Kalla was quoted saying (by local news network MetroTV) that Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, "would always be on Palestine's side".

Retno stressed that even prior to the announcement, she spoke with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and said the decision will "hamper the peace process and peace itself" in the region.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said democracy means respecting worldwide law.

"It is also an infringement on the Palestinian people's national rights, including their right to self-determination, and a grave breach of the worldwide law along with the Security Council's relevant resolutions: namely Resolutions No. 252 (1968), 267 (1969), 465, 476 and 478 (1980), including the recent Resolution 2334 (2016)".
