BINTANGNEWS.com – Palestine has expressed its appreciation for Indonesia’s ongoing support of the country's independence. The message was conveyed by Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al Maliki to  Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit in Venezuela on Friday.
"Indonesia has been and will consistently continue to bring up the issue of Palestine's independence in various meetings, so the issue of Palestinian independence receives attention and international support," Retno said in a statement released by the Foreign Ministry. 
During the meeting, Retno asserted that Indonesia would continue to give assistance and technical cooperation to Palestine. She also stressed to her Palestinian counterpart that support for Palestine did not only come from the Indonesian government but also from its people.

Indonesia will also participate in the NAM Palestinian Committee meeting as part of a series of high-level meetings at the NAM summit, held on Sept. 17 to 18, on Margarita Island in the Caribbean Sea.***
