Despite protestors holding banners in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta calling on President Barack Obama to return to the US, a meeting was held between the two countries’ presidents aimed at promoting both economic and security ties.


The anger on the Indonesian streets surfaced because of the belief that the United States holds hostile positions when it comes to Muslim issues. The people believe that Obama failed to change American policy on Indonesia and the way it deals with Muslim affairs, whether in Iraq, Afghanistan or Palestine. To them the US illustrated complete bias favouring the Israeli occupation. Indonesians showed their anger at Obama’s visit believing it will not accomplish anything for Indonesia and will not change American policy toward the Muslim world.


The US president, however, renewed vows and acknowledged Washington’s commitment to improving ties with the Muslim world. He maintained that it contributed to what he described as boosting American security.


The Indonesian government is currently undergoing a crisis including both difficult economic conditions and natural disasters. Indonesia’s president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, indicated that the agreement, which also included the fields of education, energy, and the promotion of democracy, will be beneficial for Indonesia.
