Indonesia Foreign Minister Retno said, Israel’s excuse for “self-defense” is unacceptable

JAKARTA (ANTARA) – The Indonesian Foreign Minister said the reason for Israel’s self-defense for its actions in the Gaza Strip was unacceptable, because that reason could not be used by invaders like Israel.

This was conveyed by Foreign Minister Retno at a meeting of the delegation of ministers of a number of member countries of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow.

Meeting four hours, Foreign Minister Retno said the OIC ministers again expressed a curse on what Israel had done to Gaza.

He said Israel’s reasons for what is currently being done in Gaza as self-defensive are highly unacceptable.

“This reason cannot be used by invaders like Israel,” said Foreign Minister Retno in a video caption from London, England, Wednesday, November 22.

“The reason for self-defense cannot be used as a license to kill civilians, it cannot be used as an excuse to kill civilians and attack civilian facilities,” Foreign Minister Retno continued.

Foreign Minister Retno said Russia, through Foreign Minister Lavrov, welcomed the visit of the delegation of the Minister of OKI, who was a follow-up from the summit with the OIC and the Arab League in Riyadh, with the aim of stopping atrocities in Gaza and launching humanitarian aid.

He continued, Russia also agreed with the points in the resolution of the OKI-Ligan Arab Summit.

“We convey the importance of all countries seeing the issue of Gaza clearly and taking a fair stance,” said Foreign Minister Retno.

“It is urgent to immediately take action so that violence can be stopped, a ceasefire can be realized and humanitarian aid can be provided smoothly,” he explained.

He added that to make this happen, support from many countries, especially permanent member states of the UN DK, including Russia, is needed.

Before Moscow, Rento and the OIC foreign minister visited Beijing and met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Next, the group of OIC foreign ministers continued their activities by visiting England to meet Foreign Minister David Cameroon and will continue to Paris to meet President Emmanuel Macron.

The visit to the permanent member countries of the UN Security Council or P5 was carried out because the OIC and Arab League urged the UN Security Council to issue a firm resolution to end the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Al Jazeera TV station reported that two-thirds of the victims of Israel atrocities were women and children.
As a result of the genocidal campaign and destruction of hospital, schools, places of worship and residential areas in Gaza, Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan labeled Israel a terrorist state.

Together with FM Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Palestine and Sec-Gen OIC, I had a good meeting in Beijing (20/11) with FM Wang Yi of China on the situation in #Gaza. We have a shared commitment on the importance of ceasefire & unhindered humanitarian assistance,

Israel itself admits that it lost many of its citizens as a result of the sudden Hamas attack on October 7. However, Israel revised the number of casualties on its side from the original 1,400 people to 1,200 people.
