repeat here once, though, the current situation is still hard to leave, we must keep opening more room for dialogue. i have conveyed a message from president zalinski to president putin, and i express my readiness to become a communication bridge between the 2 leaders. sherlock throws beside the booker, the contents of that message from sir lensky was not laid. public widow was the 1st asian leader to visit here since the war began. he invited president zalinski to attend the g 20 leaders summit in november, even though ukraine is not part of the group. widow has expressed sympathy with ukrainians over the war and said the countries territorial integrity must be respected. prior to the meeting, he told the key of suburb of epin to witness the devastation 1st hand. indonesia is sending humanitarian aid to ukraine, but as declined to provide weapons for use against russian forces. widow came fresh
from an international summit in germany, where he was able to compare notes with western leaders and meet with those who have previously sought to persuade vladimir putin to end the war. indonesia has had success in the past and mediating in regional conflicts in asia. but would odo says he has no illusions about the complexity of the russia ukraine war. and, and reminder of those complexities. zalinski hinted, he would only attend the g. 20 summit if put in is not there, but the kremlin says, put in has already confirmed his attendance. let's go to jakarta now and speak with lena alexandra, head of the international relations department at the center for strategic and international studies. welcome to the w. news. asia. you are quoted this week in malaysia, the star newspaper as saying, dash o co widows trip to ukraine. was not a peace effort. so why did he go?
well, basically, i think we need to clarify this. i think from the press statement that, than me after the meeting with you, pending and best, and also on russia. i think it's quite clear that there are several goals. objectives are going to 50, you know, basically a article emphasized then for patients to both countries. then the g 20 summit in november in bali. that's the 1st message. second is of course to express the, the empathy and also the concern regarding the conflict on the ongoing conflict in russia and, and also in that context. he also mentioned that he's actually really to be the messenger of peace message
from the new address, then the russia, preston, and a 3rd boy. and i think this is very, very clear that indonesia, they need to press the next process, the whole, they're both countries, and also again, can return to the global supply chain. i'm aware. the commodities from most countries can, can, can go back to the global supply chain. so it can actually avoid the crises, the foot crises, the energy crisis that is actually facing or haunting many states and building in south asia. ok, you've, you've outlined. possibly some of the reasons i'm going to ask you my next question, but if you could sort of go into more detail as to why the war matters to indonesia and more broadly to southeast asia. well i think to some extent we need to meet
with it, like i said, in terms of graphical sense that the conflict itself is quite a remote from the, from the region. but of course, i think it is very clear for everyone that implications war, especially in terms of the instruction off us global supply chain. this is something that really gets the region very much, especially with a supplier, barley, and also potassium to make that the license, things like that. that really implicates the region that is still suffering from the impact of the night in panama. it talk to us about why is indonesia choosing to stay neutral in this conflict? well, water, this is what i can say. i think it is radically and we recognize ourselves that we don't really, we don't really have to be the so called the media. for example,
but we are the company that actually, um i, yeah, i implicated the most for the impacts of the water. as i mentioned earlier, it is, for example, you know, the share is one of the biggest import off the from you clean, for example. so this is something that we need to deal with, and that's why the president needs to emphasize on these. that's one point. second point is definitely because indonesia holds the position as the president of the d 20. and that is also an interest to make sure that we can secure the i did 20 i did that later on in the summer because of course, we all know that that has been issued that some countries might not want to be here in the summit later on so i'm the president, i think indonesia and to show this,
do you think indonesia sees this to possibly as an opportunity to improve its international image? well those i think that's quite near to them of us. but at this moment, i think the focus is really 1st to ensure that these countries that are config, conflicting. it's either that they return to the global supply chain in order to mitigate the, the current crisis that we are suffering, including in southeast region. and of course, the 2nd thing is to make sure that it be a successful under indonesia channel ship. okay, that was lena alexandra, the head of the international relations department at the center for strategic and international studies in jakarta. thank you very much for your analysis. thank you . ah,
