RI Govt prohibits celebrations of Israel Independence Day

Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa says the Indonesian government will prohibit any attempt to celebrate Israel’s independence day here, simply because Indonesia does not officially recognize the state of Israel.
“Our policy on this has been crystal clear — that we will recognize the existence of [the state of] Israel only if it acknowledges [the state of] Palestine,” Marty said Thursday as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.
Earlier, the website eramuslim.com published a story that a Jewish community in Indonesia had planned to organize a local celebration of Israel’s independence day soon. The site did not provide details of the location or date of the event.
