Indonesian Security Minister Visits Delhi

An Indonesian delegation led by the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, General (Retd.) Wiranto held talks with Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju in New Delhi on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

Since both India and Indonesia have world’s largest Muslim populations, in a democratic set-up and common cultural and social ties, Rijiju said India is keen to consolidate its partnership with the largest nation in South East Asia and also strengthen its ties with the ASEAN bloc.

Both leaders shared concerns on tackling fundamentalism, extremism and the threat posed by radicalization and the ISIS. Recalling his visit to Bali for the International Meeting on Counter-Terrorism in August 2016, Rijiju said he was impressed by Indonesia’s handling of the threat of the ISIS.

Both the Ministers expressed hope that they can deepen their cooperation on counter terrorism and share intelligence and coordinate in cyber security issues. Rijiju also noted Indonesia’s key role in the ASEAN and appreciated its strong commitment to regional peace and security.
