Indonesian president urges Biden to help end Gaza ‘atrocities’

by Aamaj News

“Indonesia appeals to the US to do more to stop the atrocities in Gaza,” said Indonesian President Joko Widodo as he met with US President Joe Biden in Washington, AFP reports.

Widodo had earlier said he would bring Biden a “very strong message” from a joint summit of Arab and Muslim leaders in Riyadh over the weekend which condemned Israel and called for a ceasefire.

He also said he would “deliver a specific message from President Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine, who asked me to convey it to President Biden,” regarding the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

US officials had said Biden would in turn urge his Indonesian counterpart to take a “larger role” in resolving the conflict between Israel and Hamas militants in the talks at the White House on Monday.
