“There are peaceful ways of addressing this conflict if the UN Security Council announces a cease fire,” Yudhoyono told journalists before leaving Russia late on Saturday. He arrived in Jakarta on Sunday after a three-country visit, culminating in Russia for the Group of 20 summit.
Yudhoyono said a vote by the UN Security Council would have a major impact on the situation, especially if it called for a ceasefire. “That’s why I wrote the letters,” Yudhoyono said. “President Obama and the US government can reconsider their decision There are other ways of dealing with this conflict besides war,” he added.
