Indonesia to reconsider memberships in international rrganizations

The Foreign Ministry said Indonesia will evaluate its memberships in 75 international organizations, retaining only those that offer real benefits to the country's interests.


"We'll look into how we can benefit from these memberships, and what we can contribute to the international community through these organizations," Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir said in Jakarta on Friday (23/12).

The re-evaluation was made on President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's order. The president wanted to make sure Indonesia stays true to its "free and active" foreign policy.

The government is currently considering to give up Indonesia's memberships in six international organizations.

On the other hand, to improve its standing in global politics, Indonesia started bidding for a temporary membership in the United Nations Security Council in November, a campaign led by Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.

Japanese Militarism : Japan, Between Love And Resentment

A book entitled Japanese Militarism and Its War Crimes in Asia Pacific Region (Hendrajit, ed) was recently sent to me, by the publisher, The Global Future Institute.
