In his speech, Jokowi brought up de-radicalization programs applied in Indonesia and they are claimed to succeed in making former terrorists repent and abandon the idea of committing acts of terror. "Weapons and military force cannot defeat terrorism," he said.

Prevention measures are of high importance. Jokowi added that it is necessary to monitor the flow of fund that supports radical groups. That is why Indonesia appreciates the support of G20 countries to process Indonesia’s membership in The Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
