Solution to Palestine’s Independence is More Important
The Palembang football community, one of the city's candidates for hosting the 2023 U-20 World Cup, has rejected the Israeli team's attendance at the biennial event. Because, Israel is a country that colonizes Palestine.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS – Amid controversies over Israel’s participation in the 2023 U-20 World Cup, which Indonesia will host next May, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo received a visit from Palestinian Ambassador to Indonesia Zuhair Al-Shun at the State Palace in Central Jakarta on Friday (24/3/2023). However, Zuhair clarified that he did not discuss Israel’s participation in the U-20 World Cup during this meeting.
Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) chairman Yahya Cholil Staquf also stated he had not discussed the matter when he met with the President at the State Palace either. Jokowi met with Yahya after Zuhair’s visit.
