On the occasion, President Widodo stressed the importance of the TNI to maintain neutrality so that it does not fall into practical politics, as general elections will take place in the near future.

The TNI and the Indonesian National Police (Polri) are also asked to continue to increase synergy in order to maintain a conducive situation in the country and not fall into practical politics, said the president.

“Political stability, and security stability are important in the framework of our country’s development, in the context of our economic growth in an uncertain situation due to global uncertainty,” he said.
