Indonesian President, Joko Widodo, leader of the world's largest Muslim-majority nation, on Thursday condemned the USA decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The US should reconsider the decision, as it has violated various resolutions issued by the UN Security Council and General Assembly, Jokowi noted here on Thursday.
In an address from the Bogor presidential palace, the leader commonly known as Jokowi said the move announced by President Donald Trump threatens the stability of the region. He called on the United Nations to intervene on the issue.
The president said he had ordered Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to summon the United States ambassador to Indonesia to convey the Indonesian government's official stance on the issue.
"Indonesia strongly condemns the United States' unilateral recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and asks the U.S.to reconsider the decision", Widodo told a news conference.
Jokowi reaffirmed that he and the Indonesian people would remain consistent with regard to the support for the Palestinians in the struggle for independence and fulfillment of their rights, which are in line with the Preamble of Indonesia's 1945 Constitution.
Indonesia's top Muslim clerical body said the move will trigger tension and destabilize the region even further.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump announced his decision despite widespread worldwide opposition to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.
