Indonesian FM condemned double standards of Western countries in relation to Gaza Strip

Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi condemned the West's double standards regarding the Gaza Strip, RIA Novosti reports


Retno Marsudi stated that the example of Palestine demonstrated double standards on the part of a number of countries around the world, especially the countries of the Global North, so she wondered ‘where all the lectures delivered by the West about human rights are’.

Ms. Marsudi added that she will represent Indonesia at the International Court of Justice on February 19th, where she will speak at a public hearing to urge the court to give an advisory opinion that will strengthen the legal status of Palestine. The Foreign Minister also stressed that the UN Security Council could not ‘stop the ongoing genocide in the Gaza Strip’.
