Eko Hartono as Secretary of the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’s Assessment and Policy Development Agency (BPPK) when giving a speech said that the Debriefing Forum activity since 2017 was held on campuses with the aim of obtaining input from the results of the implementation of the duties of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ambassadors in various countries.
“By going to campus we hope to get input from the academic community regarding the implementation of politics and foreign relations,” said Eko.
In line with what was stated before, UNRAM Rector Prof. Dr. Lalu Husni, SH., M. Hum. explained that the Debriefing Forum aimed to introduce the program “Ambassador to the Campus Sharing” as a forum for disseminating the performance of the Heads of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia who had completed their assignments to the campus community/academics.
“As we have seen, the duty of an ambassador is to carry out Indonesian foreign relations, to safeguard and secure all forms of national interests that have been mandated, such as the protection of citizens and maintaining the integrity of the NKRI. “The contribution of the ambassadors in maintaining world peace as mandated by the constitution is also seen, one of which is in the fight against drugs,” explained Prof. Husni when delivering a speech.
Prof. Husni hopes that students who attend especially International Relations study students can gain broader insights related to economic potential and how other countries view Indonesia, the development and expansion of Indonesian industries abroad, cooperation between countries in various fields, and the process of sharing experiences and best practices (best practices) among friendly countries.
“Hopefully, the younger siblings from the International Relations study program will be more openly informed about bilateral and multilateral relations and Indonesian diplomacy on the world stage,” he concluded.
