Indonesia Not Issuing Travel Advisories

How Indonesia's Department of Foreign Affairs Views the Need for Travel Advisories.

(7/24/2005) Despite the recent terrorist bombings on the London Transport System, Indonesia’s Department of Foreign Affairs is not issuing travel warnings advising its nationals to avoid visiting London or the United Kingdom.

According to the Secretary General of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Sudjadnan Parnohadiningrat, the Indonesian Government does not view any specific country as being at greater risk of terrorist attacks and, as a result, is not issuing terror-related travel warnings.

According to Sudjadnan, who once served as Indonesia's Ambassador to Australia, "dangerous situations can develop anywhere, so we do not differentiate one country as being more dangerous than another."

Sudjadnan explained that, on the domestic front, the Indonesian Government continues to warns managers of public venues to exercise caution in how they operate in order to minimize the risk of crowded public places becoming easy terrorist targets.
