REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, YOGYAKARTA -- Foreign Affairs Ministry and Muhammadiyah have held a meeting to discuss several humanitarian issues. During the session, the two parties also discuss Yerusalem status. "We wanted to have some inputs related to foregin affairs policy," Minister of Foreign Affairs Retno Marsudi said.

According to Retno, the struggle for Palestinian independence would be a long and winding road. Nevertheless, Indonesia will always be in Palestinians side. "The meeting mapped out support measures for Jerusalem, Rohingya and Marawi," Marsudi explained.

Retno explained, cooperation with Muhammadiyah has been going on for many years. She said, Muhammadiyah has been responsive to humanitarian issues, such as in Rakhine State. 

"Muhammadiyah has helped a lot in the provision of humanitarian assistance to Rakhine State. Until now humanitarian activities continue to be done not only in Myanmar but also Bangladesh," said Retno on Friday, December 30, 2017.

Meanwhile, Ministry and Muhammadiyah also discuss ways to implement educational aid in Southern Phillipines after Marawi was freed.

"We will discuss about teachers and students exchange, because we also have the capacity to provide scholarships and Muhammadiyah also has a lot of educational institutions," said Retno. 

Chairman of Muhammadiyah Central Board, Haedar Nashir warned, Indonesia will be in a gamble that lead to a new political heat that are not desired. Therefore, he affirmed that Indonesia's support is not just for Palestine, but for a new world order. 

"A new world order that requires peace, universal human rights and the upholding of world democratization, and Indonesia pioneered that," said Haedar.
