KATHMANDU, May 11: Indonesia has pledged support to the Government of Nepal for the re-construction of the physical infrastructures damaged due to the April 25 quake.

Talking to RSS, the Indonesian Ambassador to Nepal, Iwan Wiranata-Atmadja, shared that Indonesia would like to extend its helping hand to Nepal at the adverse time like this through the South-South Cooperation.

South-South Cooperation is a term coined by the policy-makers to refer to the broad framework for collaboration among the developing countries of the South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains.

The President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, sending a message to the Prime Minister Sushil Koirala through the Indonesian envoy Atmadja, has expressed sorrow over the loss of life and properties caused by the 7.6-magnitude quake. He has also expressed the will to support Nepal in the sector of disaster management.

President Widodo and Prime Minister Koirala had called on each other recently in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta during the 10th anniversary of the New Asian-African Strategic Partnership (NAASP).

Indonesia has also requested Nepal to table a proposal to the Indonesian government, citing the anticipated cooperation on the basis of the need.

Ambassador Atmadja argued that Nepal could largely benefit from the experience of Indonesia in the domain of disaster management which it was renowned for.

“Indonesia is ready to extend its support for the capacity building of its government bodies as the Health and Security sector,” Atmadja stated.

Similarly, Chandra Prasad Dhakal, the Honorary Consul to Indonesia, informed that the Indonesian-aided relief materials were being distributed to the quake-victims.

He believed that Nepal could benefit from the Indonesians’ expertise and experience in the areas of rescue, resettlement and management of relief materials.
