Indonesia Calls For Maximum Restraint and Peaceful Settlement in Ukraine


Indonesia has been deeply concerned by the worsening situation in Ukraine, which had escalated from what had initially been an internal political instability within the country to an international crisis which threatens not only the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, but also risks raising tensions in the relations between the affected countries. Indonesia's concern is stated by Minister Marty M. Natalegawa in Jakarta (04/03).

Indonesia reaffirms its principled and consistent position on respect for the sovereignty and territorial of states as a fundamental principle of relations among nations.

Indonesia calls, on all concerned parties to exercise utmost restraint, manage the crisis, promote the peaceful settlement of the situation in Ukraine, and to consistently uphold respect for international law.

It further calls oil the United Nations Security Council, including the permanent members of the Security Council, to shoulder its responsibility in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations in maintaining international peace and security in responding to the crisis in Ukraine, including through the possibility of dispatching a special envoy of the UN Secretary General to the affected region.
