JAKARTADAILY.ID – Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on Sunday, June 26, 2022, left for Germany to fulfill the invitation to the G7 Summit.

At the forum where the G7 Summit was held, each head of state discussed efforts to make peace from the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Jokowi in his state agenda will also visit Russia and Ukraine.

President Jokowi's visit to the two countries is a form of concern for humanitarian issues and to continue to promote peace.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has an impact on all countries, especially developing countries and all low-income countries.

Riza Noer Arfani, an expert in International Political Economy from Gadjah Mada University, assessed that the visit of Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo to Ukraine and Russia was very strategic and could reduce the widespread impact of the conflict between the two countries.

"This visit is very strategic. But this is only the beginning. After the meeting was successful and resulted in a joint statement, it must be followed up with steps through the G20 as the main channel," said Riza.

Riza assessed that in addition to the state visit and the host of the 2022 G20, Jokowi's main agenda will be discussing matters relating to the interests of the economy and recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
