“The food, energy and financial crisis, the still ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, have led to the consequences we all see now,” said Jokowi.
A few months ago, President Jokowi went on a “peace mission” to act as a mediator between Presiden Putin and President Zelenskyy. During the meeting, Jokowi expressed his hope that the war can be ended to help restore the global economy.
However, Jokowi went home empty-handed. He later concluded that the war is not likely to end soon. “After a 2.5-hour meeting with President Putin, plus a 1.5-hour of meeting with President Zelenskyy, I came to the conclusion that the war will not end soon. It will take a long time,” Jokowi said. (rr)
