Greetings to Indonesia

President Hassan Rouhani offered his congratulations to the Indonesian people and government over the Southeast Asian country's Independence Day. In a message to his Indonesian counterpart, Joko Widodo, on Wednesday, Rouhani felicitated the 71st independence anniversary of the country and called for closer ties between Tehran and Jakarta in all spheres, Tasnim News Agency reported. "I hope that in light of the existing political will and by using the two countries' numerous capacities, we will witness expansion of relations and cooperation in all political, economic, cultural and international areas," he said. The Iranian president wished Widodo health and success and prosperity for the "Muslim and brotherly people" of Indonesia. Indonesia, a Southeast Asian nation made up of thousands of volcanic islands, is home to hundreds of ethnic groups speaking different languages. Indonesia had been a Dutch colony for over 300 years when a group of revolutionaries declared independence on August 17, 1945.
