Indonesian president seeks to ease global food crisis with Ukraine, Russia visits

JAKARTA, 23 June 2022, (TON): Indonesia’s top envoy said “Indonesian President Joko Widodo was set to meet his Russian and Ukrainian counterparts to urge peace and help ease a global food crisis triggered by Moscow’s invasion.”

Four months into the war in Ukraine, one of the world’s breadbaskets, the conflict has delivered shockwaves to global supply chains.

The invasion has also stoked an energy crisis following international sanctions slapped on Russia, a major oil and gas producer, leading to rising inflation in many countries.

Widodo will be the first Asian leader to meet both Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin since the war started.

Marsudi said “Widodo would visit Ukraine and Russia after attending the Group of Seven summit in Germany next week.”
