The Indonesian government has called on countries grouped in MIKTA (Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea, Turkey and Australia) to engage in new and more concrete forms of cooperation.
"Indonesia supports MIKTA’s innovative and concrete cooperation in the face of various common challenges," Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in a press statement on Sunday, following her attendance at the 8th MIKTA Ministerial Meeting in Sydney, Australia, on Friday.
At the meeting in Sydney, foreign ministers of the MIKTA countries agreed to foster bilateral relations and support each other’s diplomatic missions through exchange programs, in which MIKTA members can send diplomats to the missions of other MIKTA members in countries where they have no diplomatic representatives of their own.
"With this cooperation, Indonesia could send its diplomats for internship programs to MIKTA members' representatives, such as in the Pacific countries, Africa or Central and South American countries, where Indonesia has no diplomatic representatives," Retno was quoted as saying by news agency Antara.
The foreign ministers of MIKTA also agreed to cooperate to exchange experience on applying innovative public policies. (dmr)
