“The comprehensive partnership currently ongoing between Indonesia and the US has defined cooperation in various fields,” Secretary Kerry said in his remarks at the Foreign Ministry in Jakarta on Monday, as quoted by Antara news agency. He said the US-RI bilateral relationship had grown stronger, marked by the signing of the agreements which were held after the fourth joint commission meeting. Kerry said the signing of the agreements was aimed at improving US-RI bilateral relations that were being more closely bound together. Kerry also conveyed US President Barack Obama’s condolences to all victims of the eruptions of Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra and Mount Kelud in East Java. Kerry’s visit to Jakarta is part of his Asian trip, which includes Abu Dhabi, Beijing and Seoul, from Feb.13 to Feb.18.
