A delegation from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) led by that organization's Director, Robert Muller, arrived at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport midday on Friday, March 15. Leading a delegation of 10, the Director made a brief visit to meet leading Indonesian law enforcement officials and to discuss the U.S. led "war on terrorism."
Arriving in Bali on board the Jakarta-based U.S. Embassy's private aircraft, the delegation proceded immediately for talks in Nusa Dua with Mr. Muller's Indonesian counterpart, General Dai' Bachtiar, the Chief of the National Police Force, and the Coordinating Minister for Political and Security Affairs, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
Mr. Muller used the occasion of the talks to emphasize that America's "War on Terrorism" was not a war against Islam. Underlining how his department had investigated a number of threats made against the U.S.A.'s many Moslem communities in the wake of 911, Muller praised the government of Ibu Megawati for its cooperation in fighting international terrorism.
The high level discussions between Indonesia's and America's law enforcement officers continued on Saturday, March 16, 2002, to include discussions with the Chief of Indonesia's State Intelligence Body to discuss details of developing cooperation not only in combating international terrorism but in confronting cross border crime.
