Indonesia becomes model for terrorism prevention

Indonesia has become a model for other countries in preventing and handling terrorism, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Fachir has said.

“Indonesia has numerous experiences in handling and preventing terrorism cases,” the deputy minister said at the sidelines of ASEAN-UN: Regional Dialogue III on Political-Security Cooperation seminar here on Tuesday.

At the event, the ASEAN and the United Nations (UN) member countries discussed conflict management and diplomacy.

The seminar is aimed to establish awareness of international people on terrorism threats, according to Fachir.

“Indonesia has shared experiences in preventing and resolving conflicts through cultural approach and repressive ways,” he noted.

One of the terrorism cases in Indonesia was the Jakarta bombing in early 2016.

“Indonesia has been considered successful in handling the case so quickly and encouraging people not to be afraid of terrorism,” Fachir said.

The UN is synergizing its action plan on terrorism prevention with the ASEANs mechanisms, he added at the seminar.
