Indonesia was founded with noble aspirations. Aside from ensuring that its people prospered, Indonesia was founded to only actively participate in maintaining world order.
It is stated in the Preamble of the 1945 Constitution that the world order sought should be based on sovereignty, lasting peace and social justice. In other words, the world order Indonesia pursues should not be based on the dominance of a certain power, nor be at the expense of true peace and justice.
In order to realize the noble aspirations of our founding fathers, it is imperative that foreign policy guides Indonesia’s role on the international stage.
