TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - In his speech at the 33rd ASEAN Summit in Singapore, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo called for ASEAN countries to be actively involved in the humanitarian crisis currently plaguing Rakhine State, Myanmar.

Jokowi asserted the need of having ASEAN countries to commit with fellow members upon maintaining peace and prosperity in the region as a large family. However, in reality, the Rakhine State crisis continues.

“As a family member, Indonesia hopes that there will be a step forward upon finding a solution for the matter,” said the seventh Indonesian President.

President Jokowi maintained that Indonesia is ready to play its role to which he expressed his positivity that ASEAN would also help the Myanmar government upon creating a helpful environment at Rakhine State where freedom of movement is respected, eliminating discrimination, and presenting inclusive developments.
