November 21, 2015 12:03 am
The Indonesian government has expressed interest in developing its partnership with the Pacific Islands Development Forum in the area of Climate Change.
An Indonesian government delegation met with the PIDF Secretary General Francois Martel in Suva this week to further strengthen bilateral cooperation.
The delegation, led by a Senior Director of Indonesia’s Foreign Affairs Ministry Salman Al Farsi told the meeting that Indonesia understands the Pacific’s position on Climate Change as they also have many low islands.
In this regard Indonesia is hopeful PIDF can meet with the Indonesian Delegation at the COP21 Summit in Paris.
The Indonesian delegation acknowledged the relevance and need of the PIDF and reaffirms their commitment to developing close relations with Pacific countries and organisations as they see the Pacific as a Strategic Neighbour.
Both parties reassured their support to strengthening bilateral relations and cooperation in areas of mutual interest.
PIDF and Indonesia had established relations at the 2013 PIDF Inaugural Meeting.
