Jakarta, IO – Speech delivered by Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Shangri-La Dialogue 2022 in Singapore, titled “Managing Geopolitical Competition in the Multipolar Region” drew praise from foreign expert at the National University of Malaysia Hoo Chiew Ping.
“@Kemhan_RI @prabowo delivered one of the most interesting comments (not your usual Western narrative). Some of the audience applauded before he ended his speech (which is also rare). I will highlight some of the points he made here,” Hoo tweeted via her account @HooCP as quoted by Antara, Monday (13/6).
Hoo said Prabowo started his performance with the wave of independence movements after the second world war to argue about anti-colonialism among smaller or weaker countries in the face of pressure from the world’s great powers.
