Indonesian ambassador Ina Krisnamurthi stated in the context of India taking over the G20 presidency from Indonesia, the current G20 president, in December that Jakarta and New Delhi are cooperating closely at the highest levels like “never before” to navigate through an increasingly fluid and dynamic global scenario in the wake of the Ukraine war.
As part of Jakarta’s focus on maritime security in the Indian Ocean, she also stated in an interview that Indonesia has greatly increased naval cooperation with India, including joint exercises and port visits by warships.
In the conversation, she implied that the three priorities’ vision or goal have changed due to the dynamics of the world, yet it would be nonsensical to transform the priorities into anything else while these issues still exist. Even though there are dynamics, the disruption of the global supply chain has only raised more questions about the three [pillars]. It might not have an immediate impact, but every presidency up to 2025 ought to support it. Fortunately, it appears that developing country worries will last until 2025 after a special meeting of G20 presidents at the Raisina Dialogue. Though the dynamics are different, there is hope for the discussion and discourse to go on and that it will be supported by policy because there are legitimate concerns.
She also addressed the worries that a consensus outcome might not be reached. While a consensus outcome is necessary, it is not the most significant factor in some conversations. For example, if you recall, some people suggested a boycott at the beginning of the [Ukraine] war, but it didn’t take place. That is a helpful perspective on what transpired during our presidency. Stating that the implementation of the policy itself is more crucial than reaching consensus in joint communiqués.
