Jakarta: Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR) Fahri Hamzah, at a meeting with Zuhair Rasyad, the Palestine National Council (PNC) representative, reasserted Indonesia's support for the Palestinians' struggle for independence.
Hamzah and several Indonesian members of parliament are on a visit to Amman, Jordan, on May 26-29, 2019, the Indonesian Embassy in Amman noted in a press statement here on Wednesday.
The Indonesian people and government will continue to extend their unwavering support to the struggle of Palestinians for the sovereignty of their country, Hamzah asserted.
All political parties' factions in the DPR too will offer their unstinting support to the Indonesian government's endeavors to help Palestine, he remarked.
"The freedom of Palestine is an unpaid debt for Indonesia," he emphasized.
The PNC representative lauded Indonesia's staunch support extended to Palestine so far.
The working visit was made to bolster bilateral cooperation between the parliaments of Indonesia and Jordan.
The Indonesian MP delegation also met with Nassar Al Qaisi, deputy chairman of the Jordanian Parliament.
The Jordanian MP is upbeat of drawing more Indonesian tourists to visit Jordan and Palestine, particularly Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Hamzah has expressed hope that Indonesians would prefer visiting Jordan and Palestine, particularly if they were to be offered facilities including visa-free travel, attractive tourism packages, and direct flights.
"If such facilities were to be offered, it is beyond doubt that the number of tourists from Indonesia will rise considerably," he added. (Antara)
