12 September 2022 14:57 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo's absence from the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has been confirmed by Foreign Affairs Ministry's multilateral cooperation director general Tri Tharyat. Indonesia's presence at the assembly, which is scheduled for September 12 to 27, 2022, will be represented by Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi instead.

The Ministry's director general did not specify the reason for the President's absence. Tempo has reached out to Presidential Secretariate chief Heru Budi Hartono over Jokowi's absence but until this article was published, had not received an answer.

Retno Marsudi plans to deliver her speech in person at the general assembly in New York, which is being held on-site for the first time following the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. This marks another Jokowi’s absence in the Assembly throughout his entire term as President. 

Moreover, Tri said Indonesia will speak about its G20 presidency mission and the event's continuity apart from energy security, the digital transition of the economy, and the global health architecture.

The 77th United Nations General Assembly will officially be opened on September 13 and will mainly highlight issues related to education transformation, the rights of minorities, and sustainable development goals or SDGs.
