State Palace: Indonesia Never Boycotts Israel Products

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Johan Budi Sapto Pribowo, the President's Special Staff of Communication said that Indonesia will not boycott any Israeli products. Johan explained that the boycott statement conveyed by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo referes to Israel’s policy on Palestine occupation.

"What [the President's] mean was not goods product," Johan said on Tuesday, March 9, 2016.

Johan said that President Jokowi's boycott statement was aimed at Israel’s policy on occupying Palestine territory, for example, a boycott on the ban imposed by Israel against Palestinian from entering the Al-Aqsa complex.

Johan asserted that the decision to boycott Israel's policy on Palestine has been agreed in the recent Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit.

During the closing of the OIC Summit on Monday, March 8, 2016, President Jokowi stated that the OIC needs to put pressure against Israel, for example, by boycotting Israel's product produced within the occupation territory.
