Indonesia reiterates urge for Libyan ceasefire

Indonesia's earlier call for an "immediate ceasefire" in Libya has been reiterated by its president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority country in the world and also a Sunni-predominant republic, achieved its independence after defeating and expelling colonial forces in a four -year armed campaign for Merdeka. Nowadays, policy positions taken by national leaders in democratised Indonesia can certainly be regarded as being far more representative of its own people than those made during the 32-year rule of Sukarto.
