(11/20/2005)

Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, invited 23 Jakarta-based foreign diplomats to travel with him to Bali and experience first-hand the island's current security situation.

Traveling to Bali in the week immediately following the Lebaran holidays, the group of diplomats were hosted by the Ministry, Garuda Indonesia, The Melia Hotel Group, the Regional Government of Badung, and the Bali Tourism Board.

On Saturday, November 12, 2005, the group of visiting diplomats joined Minister Wacik, Bali Vice-Governor, the Regent of Badung, and Police Chief Irjen Made Pastika for a seafood dinner at Café Nyoman on Jimbaran Beach.

The Café has just reopened after undergoing a series of religious cleansing ceremonies and the installation of new security measures following the tragic October 1, 2005, terrorist attack involving the popular beach side restaurant.

Among those attending the beachside dinner was Her Excellency the Ambassador of Turkey to Indonesia, Feryal Cotur Onder, who enjoyed the evening out in Bali together with her Husband. Ambassador Onder assured the people of Bali that they were not alone in their battle against terrorism, adding, "confronting terrorist acts requires international cooperation across sovereign borders. We all love peace and Bali is a favorite world destination whose image we must protect."

Minister Wacik underlined the key role that foreign diplomats can play in Bali's recovery, explaining that by showing the representatives of foreign governments Bali's condition following the recent bombing they will come to know and understand that Bali is safe and has retained its charm.

"Seeing is believing and that is how we will restore Bali's image. During the month of November the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has created four separate programs inviting national and foreign media to Bali to experience Bali first hand," explained Minister Wacik.
