Indonesia is proud of its 50 years of friendship with Bangladesh and looking forward to stronger bilateral cooperation with the country, Heru Subolo, Indonesian ambassador to Dhaka, said on Wednesday.

“Our 50 years and beyond true partnership and cooperation between Indonesia and Bangladesh will shine under the spirit of friendship from both leaders of the two countries and the people, many years ahead,” he said.

He also expressed the grievance in solidarity with the people of Bangladesh, on the occasion of national mourning day on August 15, 2022, by remembering the struggle of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, for the Liberation War of Bangladesh.

Earlier on Tuesday, Ambassador Heru Subolo, together with other ASEAN’s Heads of Mission in Dhaka, paid homage to Bangabandhu by laying a wreath and visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum.

Ambassador Heru said Bangabandhu’s struggle and forward-looking visions have inspired the people and the leaders of Bangladesh and beyond.

Heru came up with the remarks marking the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia. The event started with a flag hoisting ceremony in the morning on the premises of the Embassy.

There were more than 150 participants including diplomats and staff of the Embassy, Indonesian citizens and diaspora living around Dhaka.

The ceremony was held with limited participants as part of strict health protocols regarding Covid-19.

The Embassy also hosted several other activities, among others fun games and competitions participated by the Indonesian communities, as well as cultural performances called “Panggung Gembira” and also food stalls festivals, soon after the flag ceremony was held.
