TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Chairperson of Democratic Party Faction in the People's Representative Council of the Republic of Indonesia, Nurhayati Ali Assegaf, strongly rejected foreign intervention in Iran’s internal affairs, and voiced full support for the Iranian government to immediately resolve its domestic problems peacefully.
"I encourage and support the Iranian government to immediately resolve the situation peacefully,” she was quoted as saying in a statement published by Indonesian news agency, Antara, while referring to the protests that erupted in several cities in Iran on December 28 over price hikes and other economic issues.
She stressed that foreign intervention in Iran’s affairs will escalate the situation in a worse direction, adding “our stance is very clear. We reject any form of foreign interference in Iran and any other territory. Some regional countries there proved how foreign interference actually worsens the situation, rather than provide a solution.”
