“So when we look at each other, India and Indonesia. I think there is a very natural feeling attachment that we have each other. And this emotional connect, I would say, in many ways, is a very big resource for this relationship to drop,” he added.
He mentioned the emotional connection between the two nations, stating that there is a natural attachment between India and Indonesia. He also acknowledged that both countries gained independence around the same time and embarked on nation-building under similar circumstances.
He also highlighted how India and Indonesia both got their independence around the same time and since then the two countries got engaged in nation-building under similar circumstances.
“We got our independence around the same time. We were engaged in nation building, in very similar circumstances,” the External Affairs Minister said, adding, “When it comes to India and Indonesia, you know, there are a lot of things that we shared in common, not just the alphabet I with which country names begin, or even the location, the fact that we are close to each other, or even that we are large countries with enormous diversity.”

And I would say without your contribution, your hard work, your effort out here, our ties, not just with Indonesia. This is generally true all over the world. But definitely, in the case of Indonesia, given how strong our ties are, I think I would begin really by recognizing your achievement and by complimenting you,” he said.
