"Indonesia has proven that values of Islam, democracy, and moderation can be compatible in daily life," Turnbull said, at a press conference held during Indian Ocean Rim Association Summit (IORA) 2017 in Jakarta Convention Center, on Tuesday.
According to the prime minister, Indonesia has pioneered the efforts as indicated during the IORA 2017 that resulted in a declaration to prevent and counter terrorism and violence crimes.
The member states of IORA have agreed on a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to prevent terrorism and violence.
All members have agreed to promote positive messages of respect to each other and tolerance, in addition to appreciating diversity and social differences.
Additionally, the Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud has discussed peacekeeping efforts in Indonesia along with President Joko Widodo.
The Indonesian Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi said King Salman stressed that moderation and tolerance are needed to prevent terrorism and violence and develop solidarity.
Widodo concluded the IORA Summit 2017 at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) on Tuesday.
He appreciated all ministers, high officials, and delegates who produced the Jakarta Concord.
The Jakarta Concord is a strategic document of the IORA that could serve as a guide for its member states to respond to global challenges.
The Jakarta Concord carries three important issues to strengthen the six IORA priority issues, which have been in place since the beginning, and to establish cooperation in the future. The issues are related to women's empowerment, blue economy, and democracy. (*)
