Indonesia Rejects Crimean Referendum

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, stated that the Indonesian government refused to acknowledge the Crimean referendum, claiming that it does not have a legal basis.

The government's stance was officially announced by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono during a closed cabinet meeting. Indonesia's position in the conflict implied that the country prioritizes the sovereignty and integrity of a country.

Indonesia also puts forth principles of respect, democracy, and the obedience to a state's constitution, condemning the attempt to topple a government using an unconstitutional way.

Marty stated that Indonesia respects the independence of a country if it is based on a lawful agreement. Marty sets an example of when Indonesia fully supported the independence of South Sudan from Sudan, and Montenegro from Serbia and Montenegro. "We support [both countries] because it is based on an understanding," said Marty.
